As schools continue to face teacher shortages, recruiting challenges, and those leaving the profession, employee benefits are more important than ever in attracting and retaining high quality educators and support staff.

SAIS is asking for the assistance of our member schools as we create a robust and informative resource around employee benefits. Your participation will help us collect information from a variety of schools to represent all sectors of our membership. Survey responses will be categorized by school size, grades served, and number of full-time employees.

The survey asks schools to provide information in the following areas:

  • teacher salaries (in general terms)
  • tuition remission
  • insurance benefits
  • retirement benefits
  • holidays, breaks, and paid time off
  • other perks and benefits offered by independent schools

The survey will be open until January 31, 2023 and the results will be shared in February.

All SAIS schools should have received an invitation to participate. Invitations with the survey link were emailed to the human resources or business office contact for your school. If your school did not receive the link to participate or if you have questions about the survey, please contact Sheri Burkeen, director of resources for SAIS.
