Easton and Redding's Top 25 Paid School Employees

The average salary of the top 25 employees of the Easton, Redding and Region 9 school districts was $142,000 for the 2010-2011 school year.

The top 25 paid administrators and teachers for the Easton, Redding and school districts together made $3.57 million during the 2010-2011 school year, according to Vicki Cram, the three districts' human resources coordinator.

Cram said she preferred providing the data for the most recently completed school year, rather than for the current school year, as the current school year's data "wouldn't give an accurate picture." 

"Anything could happen between now and the end of the school year – illness, stipend not issued for whatever reason," Cram wrote in an email to Patch. 

The following figures were provided by Cram. They include the employees salary, annuity payments, stipends and any other additional pay the employee may have received.
