The Kaneland school board Monday released the district's annual report for salaries and benefits for teachers and administrators.
The report, required by state law, will be posted on the district's website. A change in state law this year requires district to post such information for all teachers and administrators; previously, districts just had to report on administrators' compensation.

The report lists the employees' base pay, which includes anything they were paid in fiscal year 2011 for school-related duties, including their regular job, coaching a team, being an adviser to an extracurricular activity or supervising before- and after-school events. It also lists the number of sick days they have, vacation days, any bonuses (such as retirement incentives), annuities, and the cost of other benefits such as health insurance.
Superintendent Jeff Schuler was paid $158,525. He had 25 vacation days, 12 sick days, an $11,000 annuity, and $44,455 in "other benefits."
The highest base pay for a full-time teacher, at $106,241, was for a high school counselor who also is an adviser for a school club. The lowest base pay for a full-time teacher, $36,650, was earned by six teachers. Two teach first grade, one teaches second, another teaches fifth grade, one teaches art at an elementary school and the last teaches Spanish at the high school.
The term "teacher" covers other certified personnel, such as school psychologists, social workers and librarians.
