NJ Teacher Salaries

Four of the 10 school districts with the highest median teacher salaries in New Jersey this year are in Atlantic and Cape May counties, according to data included in the Taxpayer Guide to Education Spending released last week by the state Department of Education.

 The four are Margate, ranked fourth at $91,045; Brigantine, fifth, at $89,900; Ocean City, seventh, at $89,036; and Atlantic City, 10th, at $88,318.

The highest median teacher salary in the state is in the Northern Valley Regional district in Bergen County, at $105,650. The lowest is at the Red Bank and Jersey City Global charter schools, at $42,000.

Mullica Township is at the lower end of the scale, with a median salary of $53,588. Superintendent Andrew Weber said they have a large number of nontenured staff, but he expects the median to increase next year due to a reduction in force of nontenured staff caused by budget cuts.

 Salary guides play a role in overall salaries. Mullica has a starting salary of just over $52,000.
