Flossmoor School District 161 has a locally designed salary plan for all employees. Employees are paid in accordance with administrative guidelines and an established pay structure. Periodically, the District's plans are reviewed by the administration and adjusted as needed. All District positions are classified as exempt or non-exempt according to federal law. Pay ranges establish the minimum daily rates that will be paid for each job in the District. Job classifications are determined by the Human Resources Department.

Teachers new to the District are placed on the salary schedule according to years of experience and level of education. The District shall pay each certified employee not less than the state minimum yearly salary. After initial employment, salary increases are determined according to the collective bargaining agreement.
