"For school years 2010 and 2011, when a July 1 reporting deadline was in effect, school districts were directed by ISBE to include in their reports payments made through June 30, 2010. As a result, projected July and August payments to individuals paid over 12 months versus 10 should not have been included," according to the ISBE website. "For this reason—and because additional compensation can be earned for a variety of extra duties involving the supervision of students or related to the academic program—the annual compensation reported for individuals is not comparable either within or across districts."
According to ISBE 2011 report card data, the average teacher salary in District 68 was $74,128, compared to $64,978 state-wide. There were 79 teachers at the time of the 2011 report card - 83.5 percent women and 16.5 percent men. The student-teacher ratio was 13.7, compared to 18.8 state-wide.
