Salary Compensation


Effective January 1, 2012, school districts have only one salary and benefits reporting obligation under the School Code. Public Act 97-259 (the “Act”) repealed School Code Section 10-20.50, which required school district to create a salary compensation report for every employee holding and administrative certificate and working in that capacity. The Act also amended School Code Section 10-20.47, which now requires the following:

  • School districts are required to annually submit a report to the State Board of Education (ISBE) which details the base salary and benefits for all administrators, including the superintendent, and all teachers by October 1 (previously July 1) of each year.
  • Prior to submission to ISBE, the report must be presented and approved by your school board at a regularly scheduled school board meeting, and then posted on your school district website.

For the purposes of this Section, "benefits" includes without limitation vacation days, sick days, bonuses, annuities, and retirement enhancements.
