Skokie School District 68: Top Paid Principals, Big Teachers' Salaries

Old Orchard JHS

Printed below in alphabetical order are the salaries for the teachers and administrators at Skokie School District 68.
The recent Sun-Times breakdown on government school teachers' and administrators' pay showed that Skokie's SD 68 was among the top ten systems in the state in doling out cash to principals.

The district, which runs Old Orchard Jr. High, Jane Stetson, Devonshire and Highland elementary schools was shelling out an average of $140,621 a year to them -- $40,000 above the state average.

But it turns out that a lot of the other staff and unionized teachers at these Skokie schools are feeding pretty well at the taxpayer gravy train too.

Among the highlights:

--- 4 Gym teachers making just shy of $100k. Not bad pay for moderating kickball games.

--- A $97k Home economics teacher. Who did they get, Martha Stewart?

--- 5 music teachers, the top ones hauling in $99k and $95k. Are Pavarotti and Riccardo Muti moonlighting on the North side of Skokie?

And the next time one of the lobbyists from the ICIRR illegal immigrant advocacy group tells you that immigration doesn't cost taxpayers, consider that this little suburban SD 68 alone teaches 250 non-English speakers at a cost of $13,137 each or a total of $3.3 million a year.

Here are all the salaries reported to the ISBE for 2010. In most cases they are for 9 months of work. You can get a more detailed spreadsheet with years of service, education background, teaching specialty etc. by going to the Family Taxpayers Foundation website. They are the group that initially filed the Freedom of Information lawsuit to secure this data for the taxpaying public.
