More than 91.2 percent of teachers stay at Iroquois Community School year to year, according to the 2018 three-year average in the latest Illinois schools report card.

The Illinois State Board of Education records data concerning faculty salary, retention and attendance because maintaining a stable faculty makes for a better environment for teachers and students, furthering student success, according to the report.

CCSD 62 full-time faculty members number 391, with a student-teacher ratio of 15-to-1. There are 485 students enrolled at the elementary and middle school.

The average salary for teachers within the district is $77,682.49, ranking it 76th out of 999 districts in the state for pay. About 71.8 percent of teachers at the elementary and middle school and 71.8 percent of those in the district were absent 10 days or fewer in 2018, compared to 70.2 percent of teachers in the state.

Salaries vary depending on the school and district, as well as the teacher's level of experience and education, according to the report. The U.S. Department of Education considers teacher attendance a "leading indicator" of how well students perform. When a high rate of teachers are absent more than 10 days, data shows students perform worse.
