slides: Highest Paid Teachers in Central Mass

Wednesday, December 12, 2012

 

The Commonwealth's 66,882 full-time equivalent public school teachers were paid $4,704,491,652 for an average salary of $70,340 in the 2010-2011 school year, according to data from the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education.

GoLocalWorcester broke down the 20 districts in Central Mass with the highest average teacher salaries to see how the region's schools measure up. Only 13 districts in the area had average salaries that exceeded the statewide average.

Editor's Note: An earlier version of this article listed the average teacher salary in Worcester Public Schools as $86,005 for the 2010-2011 school year, as listed in the teacher salary data available from the state Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. However, according to the district's Human Resources department, the average salary was actually $68,000. The current average teacher salary in Worcester is $71,074. The district's lowest teacher salary is $42,461 and the highest amount a teacher can be paid is $83,000, but the teacher must have a doctorate degree.
