Every year, the state controller publishes thousands of public employees’ salaries, from nearly every city, county and special district, on its transparency-focused “Government Compensation in California” website.
Here’s what you won’t find: about two-thirds of the Golden State’s school systems.
Unlike other public agencies in the state, California’s schools can choose whether to participate because of a loophole in state law. Most do not even reply to the controller’s requests.
This year, of the 1,915 requests sent to education employers, only 447 provided the appropriate information. Another 128 responded, but with either incomplete or unacceptable records, according to the state Controller’s Office.
Though the numbers are bleak, there was an improvement as 35 more school systems replied this year than last. Still, fewer were compliant overall than in 2020.

Grossly overpaid teachers alert.
California School Administrators:
They cannot hide from the interwebs.
hummmm! - A public employee and the salary-compensation package is hidden from the public?? What kind of a “loophole” can that be???
Citizens aren’t allowed to know how much they’re paying who/what?
California = Hell on Earth
what is interesting - and frightening - is that most who live there think it is perfectly normal. There does not seem to be the least concern that Calif. is a sh^t hole. In fact, it is embraced.
