School districts throughout New York reported their numbers to the NYSED. Although the data is self-reported by each district and is unaudited, it does “not necessarily represent the whole state as there are districts that are not required to report the data. In addition, some districts may not use certain titles.”
Superintendent wages are broken into three categories and then added together for a grand total. The three categories include “salaries,” “fringe” and “other.”
The NYSED defines the three categories as follows:
- Salaries: The wages budgeted on an annual basis for the position.
- Fringe: Fringe benefits are allowances and services provided by employers as compensation in addition to regular salaries and wages. The cost of fringe benefits includes employer contributions for social security, employee life, health, unemployment and worker’s compensation insurance, pension plan costs and other similar benefits allowable under established written policies.
- Other: The annualized monetary value of any and all forms of compensation not included under Salaries or Fringe for Type 1 or 2 positions. Examples include (but are not limited to) employer expenses for additional insurance and/or annuities, housing allowance, moving allowance, the personal use of a vehicle and/or residence, professional organization membership fees or dues, and other expenses.
