  • 2009 : 6 of 30 - (20%)
  • 2010 : 4 of 26 - (15%)
  • 2011 : 5 of 26 - (19%)


You can also view performance data for each school building within a district.

Elmhurst Elementary, located in our neighborhood, continues to perform well, meeting 100% of the indicators.


This is very old data. Maybe updated info exists.

September 2004 Toledo Talk thread that excerpted from a Toledo Blade story about teacher's pay. That Blade story included detailed, tabular data that existed in the print version but not on its website.

Nationally, the average salary for a teacher was $45,771. Ohio ranked 15th in the nation in average salary at $45,515. But the state ranked 27th for its average beginning teacher salary of $28,866.

Michigan teachers on average took home nearly $10,000 more than their Ohio counterparts. The average teacher salary in that state was $54,020, which was the second-highest in the nation behind California.

Toledo Public Schools pays $32,697 annually to a teacher straight out of college.

Catholic high schools in the metro Toledo area paid an average starting salary of $24,506 last year.

On the elementary-school level, the average starting pay was $20,925.

The affluent Ottawa Hills school district offers a starting salary of $31,602 a year.


My September 2004 comments based upon the data from that September 2004 Blade story:

TPS pays a higher starting salary than Ottawa Hills for teachers with a Bachelors degree.

But OH has a much higher average salary at $60,621 versus TPS's $45,968.

With a Master's degree, the starting salaries between the two [school districts] are about the same.

With just a Bachelors degree and 27 years experience, TPS pays $55,577 and OH pays $53,091.

With a Masters degree and 27 years experience, OH pays $70,788 and TPS pays $60,595.

The average salary for Ottawa Hills is tops in northwest Ohio and ninth highest in Ohio.

Catholic school teachers are paid considerably less than public school teachers.

another comment

"I'd like to see another column that shows the poverty rate for each community, which I believe may be a larger contributing factor than the amount spent per pupil."

What's the relationship, if any, between the amount spent per pupil and the percentage of performance indicators met?

It seems like the amount spent and the district's performance is all over the place.

  • Eastwood Local - $7,907 - 100%
  • Perrysburg Ex Vill - $8,581 - 100%
  • Toledo City - $12,470 - 8.3%
  • Ottawa Hills Local - $13,501 - 100%
  • Rossford Ex Vill - $15,589 - 75.0%

I would think that Rossford residents would have some questions.

And within TPS, why do some individual school buildings, such as our beloved Elmhurst Elementary, perform consistently well while other buildings routinely struggle?

"I'd like to see another column that shows the poverty rate for each community ..."

You might have to show some standard demographic info, such as household income and adult education level, at the zip code level, and then compare that data to the rankings of individual school buildings within the zip codes. Whether it proves anything, who knows. Others can interpret.

You can play around with this mapping tool, which shows some demographic information at the zip code level, but unfortunately, I think this data is several years old. But it could still prove useful on a relative basis.

According to a quick check with the above mapping tool, the average household income for Toledo zip codes ranges from around $24,000 to over $40,000.
