GovDocs Adds Salary Database for Portland Public Schools' Employees

Portland Public Schools' kids
Oregon Capitol News today added new information to its database of public employees' salaries, listing for the first time the wages at Portland Public Schools, the state's largest school district.

The database, based on information given to the Oregon Capitol News by the school district, appears to have a few glitches. For example, it lists a physical education social studies teacher at Lincoln as the district's third highest paid employee and an elementary school teacher at Buckman as another top-paid employee. However, there's no such thing as overtime in teaching, and the salary for teachers tops out at $73,168 for an educator with a PhD and 12 years of experience, according to the teachers' contract.

In other respects the database tells you what you might expect. Central office administrators commonly earn six-figure salaries while library aides, paraeducators and educational assistants take home wages below $30,000.

Oregon Capitol News is a project of the Cascade Policy Institute, a libertarian think tank.
