Following is a chart that details the 2014 calendar year compensation paid to teachers who are coaches in the Princeton Public Schools who signed a letter this week about summer volunteer activities and the ongoing contract dispute between teachers and the school board.
The chart lists each teacher’s name, salary for teaching, stipends for extracurricular activities (called extra service for extra activities) and any other non-pensionable income, and total compensation for the 2014 calendar year. It should be noted that some coaches coach more than one sport and are involved in other extracurricular activities. This chart indicates each teacher’s total extracurricular compensation, not just the payment for one sport. Also note that Rashone Johnson also served as an acting assistant principal for about two months in 2014, and his salary reflects that additional duty.
Data is for the 2014 calendar year, because that is how compensation data is available in spreadsheet form as requested by Planet Princeton via the state’s Open Public Records Act. Planet Princeton requested data for all district employees.
The union has provided their own chart listing coaching salaries for the current academic year for the 24 coaches. We have embedded below the total compensation chart.
Below the chart showing total compensation for 2014 and the union chart for the coaches, we have also added charts listing stipends for individual sports at the high school as per the terms of the most recent teachers’ contract. Coaches at the John Witherspoon Middle School are paid $32.74 per hour for coaching activities.
The teachers’ union and the school board have not been able to come to an agreement on salaries and health benefits. This week coaches announced that they will not do any volunteer summer coaching or training until August because of the impasse. Their contracts specify Aug. 10 as the starting date for coaching. Earlier this year, teachers stopped doing other work they are not compensated for because of the contract stalemate.
