    graduated from a high school that was called "maybe the best music program in the country" and I believe it.  All of the fine arts teachers are extremely dedicated.  The amount of work to handle performances, rehearsals, trips, adjudications, etc. is boggling.  And, there is a lot they do that isn't part of the supplemental salary deal.  They stay after school to help kids with audition practice and to make audition DVDs.  They help at concerts for their colleagues' classes.  I can't say enough about the "above and beyond" of these people.  Whatever you get paid for supplemental stuff, trust me, I am sure it isn't enough.

      But I guess those of us that teach know that it goes with the territory. By and large doing salary by years and credentials (with some supplementals added in) avoids rancor in the workplace for teachers.
