Salaries, benefits report absorbed by U-46 board

By Seth Hancock
  On average, School District U-46 employees made $91,940 in salaries and benefits and took 11.8 sick days in Fiscal Year 2020 according to the salaries and benefits report generated by the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE).
  The 54-page report was presented to the Board of Education at its meeting on Monday, Aug. 3 which was held virtually due to the COVID-19 shutdown.
  The salaries and benefits in the report represent just over half of the $404 million budgeted for salaries and benefits in FY2020. Certain staff and certain income expenditures, like stipends, are excluded from the report.
  Districts are required to send information to the ISBE “on or before October 1st of each year, the base salary and benefits of all administrators and teachers employed by the school district; present the report at a school board meeting; submit it to the district’s regional superintendent of schools; and post the report on the district's internet website,” the agenda item stated.
  The state generates the report which is sent to the school districts.
  In previous years, it was suggested a disclaimer be added to the U-46 report that it is “misleading” by former board member Phil Costello who said:   “There should be a notation on the… staff salary and benefit information list of employees that indicates that there are significant disclosure limitations since the report only provides 60 [percent] of total compensation. Most employees on the list have multiple sources of U-46 compensation beyond the amount listed.”
  The salaries listed in the report totaled $186.3 million and $238.8 million with benefits included: other benefits ($33.7 million), retirement enhancements ($18.2 million) and annuities ($616,361).
  There were 2,597 full-time employees included in the report who took 30,649 sick days, for the 11.8 average, and 1,900 vacation days.
