BUFFALO, NY - Business First has released its annual rankings for teacher salaries in Upstate New York.

According to their findings, salaries for teachers are generally higher in Remsen, a small district in Oneida County, than in any other school district in Upstate New York. 

Remsen pays its teachers a median salary of $89,516, according to New York State Education Department data for 2011, the latest year for which official figures are available. No other district has a median above $76,000. 

Business First's annual ratings of teacher pay are based on an analysis of salary levels at five selected points in teachers' careers; the fifth, 25th, 50th, 75th and 95th percentiles in each district (percentiles indicate the ranking of a given salary on a district's payroll - a salary at the 25th percentile, for example, is larger than 25 percent of all teachers' salaries within that district). 

Complete details will be printed in Business First's 2012-2013 Guide to Upstate School Districts, a 482-page electronic publication that will be available on Friday.
