The top 10 highest-paid teachers in the Lincoln-Way Area Special Education JA District each earned more than $58,000 in total compensation in 2014, according to the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE).

The amount reflects teachers' full adjusted pay -- a calculation that includes benefits and all pension contributions by taxpayers for each teacher, and reflects a full year of work instead of the nine months teachers actually worked.

Records show that in 2014, Therese Lesh, a special education teacher in the Lincoln-Way Area Special Education JA District at 601 Willow St., received $75,882.82, the highest full adjusted pay among all teachers in the district.

No benefits were included in that amount.

Overall, the total amount the Lincoln-Way Area Special Education JA District spent on its 10 highest-paid teachers in 2014 was $652,250.

The Lincoln-Way Area Special Education JA District had 25 teachers in 2014.

According to the United States Census Bureau's 2014 Census American Community Survey, the median household income for Illinois was $57,444 in 2014.

ISBE is responsible for administering public education in Illinois and consists of nine board members appointed by the governor and approved by the Senate.
