PA Association of School Personnel Administrators


Compensation disparities vast among Pennsylvania educators. Schools in poorer, rural areas of Pennsylvania pay 30 to 60 percent less annually to teachers than schools in wealthy suburbs of Philadelphia and Pittsburgh, a Trib Total Media analysis found. Teachers in Plum Borough, 20 miles east of Pittsburgh, have the highest average annual salary in 11 counties of Western Pennsylvania — $78,848.

At the opposite end of the scale, teachers in Somerset County's Turkeyfoot Valley Area make an average of $32,848 — or $46,000 less, the analysis shows. The newspaper built a searchable statewide database and interactive map that enables taxpayers easily to compare salaries in schools throughout PA. The database uses public personnel data from the PDE to create the first user-friendly tool of its kind for finding and comparing pay for Pennsylvania teachers and administrators. Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, Sun., May 17.
