FACTORS INFLUENCING SALARIES
OF PRINCIPALS AND ASSISTANT PRINCIPALS
IN FLORIDA SCHOOL DISTRICTS
Salary schedules of Florida's public school districts were analyzed to
determine which factors influence the salaries paid to principals and assistant
principals. Minimum and maximum salaries possible were computed where it was
necessary to do so. In instances where minimum and maximum salaries could not
be computed because variable caps were not specifically delineated or because
there was only one principal and assistant principal, the salaries given are the
lowest and highest presently paid. The minimum and maximums in those instances
do not necessarily represent the possible minimum and maximum salary.
Because of the wide variation in factors that are used in computing a
principal's salary, it is not possible to use this publication to compare
individual salaries across district lines. Ways of counting experience, number
of days worked each year, the base for computing supplements, and many other
variables differ greatly across district schedules. For example, school size is
a determining factor in Bay and Escambia Counties. Bay County has three categories
of school size for elementary principals. These categories are ADM's of 0299,
300599, and 600 and up. Conversely, Escambia County has five categories for
elementary principals. These categories are 0250, 251400, 401600, 601900,
and 901 and up. Bay County supplements what the principal would make as a teacher
while Escambia County uses school size to place them on an individual salary
schedule. To add to the complexity of comparison, some districts use size categories
for one type of school such as three ,categories for elementary principals but do
not have categories for junior high or senior high principals.
Salary minimums and maximums have wide ranges in Florida. The lowest minimum
salary for a principal in a school district is $9,050 while the highest minimum
salary is $20,350.
The lowest maximum salary for principals in Florida, excluding those districts
where there is only one principal or the minimum and maximum are the same, is
$13,100 while the highest maximum is $25,932.
Assistant principals' salary ranges vary so widely that preparing averages
and comparing ranges would not be of any value. Some Florida districts do not
have assistant principals in any schools while others have them in all levels from
elementary to high school. Some districts only have them in the secondary schools.
To facilitate the examination of the factors influencing salaries paid to
principals and assistant principals, brief phrases were selected to represent
concepts that are taken into consideration when salaries are computed. A list
of these factors and an explanation of them follows.
RANK OF CERTIFICATE Ranks of certification are based on academic degrees
and hours of credit. Although not stated in every instance, most districts require
a Rank II certificate or above for the principalship. Some districts, however,
apparently allow Rank III personnel to be principals and assistant principals since
they carry provisions in their salary schedule for this possibility.
TYPE OF SCHOOL Many districts have different schedules for principals
working in elementary schools, middle schools, junior high schools, and senior
high schools. Elementary principals and assistant principals (when the district
has assistant principals in elementary schools) generally are the lowest paid
while senior high principals are the.highest paid. Middle school or junior high
principals usually fall between the elementary and senior high principals.
SIZE OF SCHOOL The definition of size of school varies widely from district
to district. The number of pupils in average daily membership is one way size is
used in salary schedules. Another definition of size uses instruction units.
Interestingly enough, districts may use school size to delimit pay grades on one
.2
level such as elementary but pay junior and senior high principals on the same
schedule. Another interesting point about school size is that, in some instances,
it can be used to delineate between type of school. Most junior and senior high
schools are larger than elementary schools and these principals, therefore, receive
higher salaries.
TIME WORKED EACH YEAR Time worked each year is expressed in two ways.
Principals and assistant principals may be paid for q certain number of months or
a certain number of days. Senior high principals are generally employed all year
in most districts. Junior high and elementary school principals may work anywhere
from 10.5 months, around 206 days, to 12 months, which may be from 236 days to
261 days. Variations within districts and levels of schools may also occur depend
ing upon the size of the school.
EXPERIENCE Provisions for experience, like most other factors, may be
expressed in two different ways. Some districts allow only years of actual
administrative experience to count while other districts allow all educational
experience to be considered.
RECOMMENDATION OF PRINCIPAL In figuring the supplement paid to assistant
principals, the principal is allowed to recommend the level of compensation.
RECOMMENDATION OF SUPERINTENDENT In a few districts, the Superintendent
is allowed to assign which step on the salary schedule the principal is placed.
A few other districts allow the superintendent to negotiate a salary for a specific
position. Generally, in these instances, a range is given and the superintendent
may place the principal any place within the range. All actions are subject to
Board approval.
SUPPLEMENTS In those districts where the salary schedule is not lock step,
provisions are made for supplements to be added to either a base principal's salary
or the salary the person would make as a teacher. The base for the supplement
can either be the individual's salary (as in an index approach) or that of a
specified position on the teachers' salary schedule. One Florida district bases
supplements on the salary for a beginning Rank III teacher while other districts
use the maximum of the rank the individual holds to compute supplements. Factors
influencing the supplement include most of the factors given above and those
factors following.
1) Unique Community and/or School Factors Consideration is given to
unique community and/or school factors when these factors are considered to
contribute significantly to the complexity of the principal's position.
2) Programs in the School Supplements are added to the principal's base
pay if the school has interscholastic sports.
3) Makeup of the Physical Plant Supplements are added to the principal's
base pay according to the percent of the school house in temporary or portable
buildings.
4) Distance from County Office Salary of principal is supplemented according
to the distance of the school from the county office.
5) Percent of Disadvantaged Students Salary is supplemented according to
the percent of the student body classified as disadvantaged.
