Here is a database (updated Jan. 13, 2014) of average teacher salaries and the superintendent salaries for school districts in California. The average teacher salary last year was $69,435, up 1% from 2012, according to new state figures. The average superintendent salary last year, excluding part-timers, was roughly $167,000, the same as 2012.
Notes: Average teacher salaries are often a reflection of three things: An area's cost of living, how much the district is willing to pay and the number of experienced teachers the district employs. After getting your results, click "details" to see all the numbers in context. "FTE" stands for full time equivalent.
Roughly 15 percent of districts -- most of them very small -- did not report 2012-2013 teacher pay data to the state.
