Compensation Reports:
Illinois School Code requires school districts to share certain information about employee compensation. The mandates on school districts to share this data are detailed in “Public Acts” that are passed by the Illinois General Assembly. Brief descriptions of these Acts are summarized below and, when applicable, related data are provided.

Public Act 096-0434:
Public Act 096-0434 (105 ILCS 5/10-20.46 new) Salary Compensation Report requires that “on or before October 1 of each year, each school district in this State, including special charter districts, shall post on its Internet website, if any, an itemized salary compensation report for every employee in the district holding an administrative certificate and working in that capacity, including the district superintendent. The salary compensation report shall include without limitation base salary, bonuses, pension contributions, retirement increases, the cost of health insurance, the cost of life insurance, paid sick and vacation day payouts, annuities, and any other form of compensation or income paid on behalf of the employee. This report shall be presented at a regular school board meeting, subject to applicable notice requirements.”

The information described above is relevant to the current school year, as information is known at this time.

At its meeting on September 22, 2020, the information described above was presented to the Board of Education, and it has subsequently been posted on the website.

For the purposes of this Section, "benefits" includes without limitation vacation days, sick days, bonuses, annuities, and retirement enhancements. The information on administrators and teachers include: name, position, title, salary, full-time equivalency and benefits. Salary information reported includes all payments for duties performed during the school year including additional payments for summer school, coaching, activities, alternative high school, and other extra-duty assignments.
