In City Schools, as in school districts across the country, “people costs” make up by far the biggest part of the district’s expense budget.
To attract and retain highly qualified and talented teachers and staff, City Schools offers attractive salaries and generous benefits. As is the case nationwide, costs related to healthcare benefit on the rise, and our revenue hasn’t kept pace.
Compared to other similar districts, City Schools offers more generous salaries and benefits.
Between FY16 and FY18, City Schools expects an increase of $46 million in salaries and benefits, with a decrease in the number of vacancies factored in.
