Edison School District Numero Uno in median teacher salaries in Middlesex County - 3rd highest paid in N.J.

Saw this piece here in the SL reporting on the top 10 teacher salaries in Middlesex County from the Taxpayers Guide to Education Spending, which was released on April 7.

Seems Edison is No.1 in median teacher salaries in Middlesex County and the 3rd highest paid in New Jersey. It has a database in the piece which you can search. Check it out.

A snipet from the piece about our district; 
Teachers in the Edison Township Public Schools district are the third-highest paid teachers in New Jersey, according to the Taxpayer Guide to Education Spending, which was released April 7.
The median teacher salary for the Edison district in the 2015-2016 school year was $92,194, the data shows.
What are Edison taxpayers getting for their money?
"The mission of the public schools of Edison Township is to ensure that all students achieve at the highest level of academic success," says schools Superintendent Richard O'Malley in a statement to parents on the district website.
Citing past records, more than 95 percent of students who graduate high school in the district attend college, the superintendent said. Students at John P. Stevens High School and Edison High School typically score well on SAT and Advanced Placement exams, the superintendent said.
Edison's median teacher salaries rose nearly 4 percent from $88,855 in the 2014-2015 school year.

Anyhoo, good question about what we get for the money. What are we getting for now $234 million bloated budgets with tax increase after tax increase? A Mission Statement, graduation rates and we typically do well on testing?!?

Took an excerpt of the data from the above mentioned NJDoE database for K-12 median salaries and if anyone is interested in having the file, just let me know:
