Greece again ranks No. 1 in teacher pay

With a median salary of $70,000, Greece again ranks No. 1 in teacher pay among school districts in Monroe and Ontario counties. In superintendent compensation, East Irondequoit leads all other districts.

An analysis of teacher and superintendent pay data from the state Department of Education will appear in the 2015 Rochester Business Journal Schools Report Card, which will be published as a supplement to this Friday’s edition of the paper.

The 2014-15 median teacher salary in Greece was $70,000—$3,000 higher than the year before, when it also led all districts, and roughly $21,000 higher than in Geneva, Ontario County, which had the lowest teacher pay ($48,769) among the 25 districts that reported salary information. Following Greece in the top five were Pittsford ($64,508), Webster ($62,246), Fairport ($61,911) and Honeoye Falls-Lima ($61,494). The complete ranking of teacher pay is here.

Repeating as the highest-paid superintendent is Susan Allen of East Irondequoit, who earned $332,154 in 2014-15 total compensation. At the other end is Matthew Frahm of Naples, Ontario County, who earned $163,835.
