The Batavia school board Tuesday released the annual report of what it paid teachers and administrators during the 2011-12 fiscal year that ended June 30.

The report, required by state law, is posted on the district's website, A change in state law this year requires districts to post such information for all teachers and administrators; previously, districts just had to report on administrators' compensation. The teacher category also includes other certified workers such as school psychologists, social workers and librarians.

The report lists the employees' base pay, which includes anything they were paid in fiscal year 2011 for school-related duties. That includes their regular job, coaching a team, being an adviser to an extracurricular activity or supervising before- and after-school events. However, the report only lists the employee's main job. It also lists the number of sick days they have, vacation days, any bonuses, retirement incentives, annuities, and the cost of other benefits such as health insurance.

The top base pay for a full-time teacher was $152,896, paid to a physical education teacher. That teacher also ran the district's summer school program, according to other documents on the website. The teacher is now retired. The lowest base pay for a full-time teacher was $41,455, paid to a high school teacher.

Superintendent Jack Barshinger was paid a base of $233,620 and a $7,300 bonus. He also received $25,000 in annuities, and the cost of his other benefits was $62,523.
