Which districts consistently pay the best extra duty stipends? What extra-curricular activity pays the best stipend? How do stipends compare when looking at the state’s 6A and 5A districts?
The answer to all of these questions and more can be found in OEA’s 2019-20 Extra Duty Comparison, which has been published in the Members Only section of our website.
The book, ready just in time for negotiations season, ranks extra duty stipends for all 6A and most of the 5A districts by sport or activity, along with the median and the average stipend for the category. There is also a chart for both classes that lists the high, low and average for every activity.
