See how well your school district pays its teachers, writes the Sacramento Bee. California’s average teacher earned $65,808 last year, an increase of 3.4 percent from 2007, but pay varies. High school districts pay the most, unified (K-12) districts are in the middle and elementary districts usually have the lowest pay.
I noticed pay averages $93,283 at my local high school district, with a starting salary of $59,692 and top pay of $112,796. That’s the highest, especially the starting pay, in our high-cost county.
