[I'm sure genoobie will like this post, giving him time to compare salary to location ]

I went thru and founf Districts #659-763 had no salary listed, but many were downstate where they pay high. So, I figure some of them should be way up on the list. Districts in Nassau and Suffolk have high pay!

Our 1st Erie County District is Sweethome (177), then KenTon (208), Williamsville (214), Cheektowaga Sloan (227).

As I looked thru the districts, I was able to find a pattern of 1st ring districts built after WWII having the highest salaries. They probably also have the most teachers at the top end of salary near retirement, so in the years ahead, I imagine they will drop as people retire. What were basically rural districts ( Grand Island, Orchard Park, Akron, Alden) are also fairly high on the list: harder to get people to move there or work there; far our) My own district, Lancaster, is at 490 -- lots of newer teachers here ( lower salary) and also one of the leanest run districts. In Erie County, next is Holland ( 525) and then ** Buffalo** (676). [Gees, think of that -- my district pays so low and does better than many in the county (10th in Erie County or 39th in all Western NY in Business First)]

Salaries are not relevant to learning or test scores or ranking in the area.
Lists like this need to note how many teachers make what "step" and how well educated ( BS, MS, PhD)
