New York State School Administrator Salary Disclosure


See the 2024 Budget Deadlines PDF Icon for additional information.

Pursuant to Chapter 474 of the Laws of 1996

Chapter 474 of the Laws of 1996 and Education Law section 1608 required that the State Education Department prepare a statewide compilation of the salaries and other personnel costs of certain school administrators and make it available to all interested parties. Listed here are data, provided by school districts, of the salaries, employee benefits and other forms of remuneration for superintendents of schools (Type 1), deputy, assistant or associate superintendents (Type 2) and the salaries of any other certified school administrators or supervisors (Type 3) who are budgeted to be paid at or above a certain level ($169,000 for 2024-25). This listing refers to information budgeted in May 2024 and expected to be paid in 2024-25 and applies to a particular position in a school district, not necessarily a particular individual. In order to fully understand the meaning of the data, clarification from individual districts may be necessary.

Caveats are in order in interpreting this data. The data are self-reported, un-audited and do not necessarily represent the whole State as there are districts that are not required to report the data. In addition, some districts may not use certain titles.

Three categories of remuneration are presented here. Taken together, they represent the total compensation provided for a particular position. The definition of each category is adapted from OMB circular A87, Cost Principles for State, Local and Indian Tribal Governments.

The definitions are:

Salaries: The wages budgeted on an annual basis for the position. Districts should report the salaries of the superintendent, regardless of level, and of deputy, assistant or associate superintendents and other certified school administrators or supervisors paid in excess of the salary threshold of $169,000.

Fringe: Fringe benefits are allowances and services provided by employers as compensation in addition to regular salaries and wages. The cost of fringe benefits includes employer contributions for social security, employee life, health, unemployment and worker’s compensation insurance, pension plan costs and other similar benefits allowable under established written policies. If a salary figure is provided for a Type 1 or Type 2 position, this item may not be $0.

Other: The annualized monetary value of any and all forms of compensation not included under Salaries or Fringe for Type 1 or 2 positions. Examples include (but are not limited to) employer expenses for additional insurance and/or annuities, housing allowance, moving allowance, the personal use of a vehicle and/or residence, professional organization membership fees or dues, and other expenses. This item might be $0, if the total compensation for a position was included in Salaries and Fringe above.

The data collection form is submitted via SAMS (State Aid Management System), in the NYSED Application Business Portal.
