This site reports data for California's K-12 public school system only.

Note: Ed-Data is getting an overhaul! For the latest data, please visit We are no longer posting new data on this site. However we will keep this site available as a source of historical data and comparisons as long as possible.

In California’s public school system, each district negotiates a contract detailing salaries, benefits, and working conditions for its teachers through a collective bargaining process. This report provides information about teachers’ salaries and benefits and their credentials and experience. See Teachers in California for a more complete background and Negotiating Teachers’ Contracts in California for a description of how teachers’ employment contracts are determined.

Salary and benefit information in the following tables come from a teacher salary report (J-90) that districts are not required to file. About 15% (covering less than 2% of the state's ADA) do not file and therefore will have no data in the Teacher Salary, Teacher Benefit, or Supplemental Salary tables.


This information, the same as on the District Profile Report, comes from enrollment and teacher counts taken during the first half of the school year.

Number of Teachers
Full-Time Equivalent Teacher Count1
Pupil-Teacher Ratio2
Average Class Size
1Full-Time Equivalent counts show the number of actual teaching positions, whereas the Number of Teachers is all teachers employed regardless of their time base (i.e., teachers who team teach count as 2 teachers but only 1.0 FTE).
2Pupil-teacher ratios are usually smaller than average class sizes because all full-time equivalent teaching positions are counted, including those not assigned to regular classrooms.

The schedule for teachers' salaries is negotiated between representatives of the teachers’ union and the district's governing board. Through this process, automatic increases in teachers' salaries are set according to years of experience and completion of additional education including, in some cases, professional development.

Since the Teacher Salary report (J-90) is not required by the state, the Statewide figures are based on responses from over 85% of districts, covering over 98% of the state's ADA.

Most of the benefits offered to teachers are negotiated by the union and district governing board. Usually the largest part of a benefit package is for health insurance. Other items could include dental, vision and life insurance. Certain benefits, such as retirement and workers' compensation, are required by law and are not part of negotiations.
