Definitions: The average salary of a public school classroom teacher for a school year, including extra compensation.
Figures exclude school district teachers reported in sabbatical leave status and all post-secondary, 3rd-party, or contract services staff members. ROTC, Rehires, and Salary Reductions are not included in these figures.

Note that variations in salary averages over time and among parishes can be due to a variety of factors, including differences in the education levels of teachers, differing years of experience, and different pay scales. Two parishes with the same exact pay scale could have very different salary averages if one parish had a large portion of experienced teachers with Master's degrees, while the other parish mostly employed recent college graduates without Master's degrees.

Data is reported by the beginning of the school year. For example, 2010 data reflects data for the 2010-2011 school year.

NA - indicates that data was not available. Most commonly, this occurs because the school district was not operational during the reporting year.
