Question#: 21

ANSWER:

The following table provides the requested cost data.

  Elementary Middle High Other Total
Total FTEs 131.000 31.400 15.000 1.500 178.900
Salary $7,395,605 $1,772,687 $846,825 $84,683 $10,099,800
Benefits 2,146,205 514,434 245,749 24,575 2,930,963
Total Savings $9,541,810 $2,287,121 $1,092,574 $109,258 $13,030,763
Partial Savings (50%) $4,770,905 $1,143,561 $546,287 $54,629 $6,515,382

These costs are based on teacher new hire rates rather than staff development teacher average salaries. This is because employees in the current positions would return to teacher positions and the savings would be found in not hiring that number of teachers.
