It shows the "total package," which school board member says is easier for comparison purposes with other districts in the region.

Crookston School Board Member Robin Brekken submitted a teacher compensation and benefits package document Tuesday that he says makes it easier to compare Crookston teachers' package with teachers in other districts throughout the region. The "total package" column is second from the left on the document.

"This is the most detailed data published that we have on this subject. The numbers are the same as all the previous data I have presented except they are arranged in a different format," he said. "There are a couple of new columns which add greater detail.

"I have had quite a few comments that the last sheet of data was a little hard to follow so this one should be easier to make sense out of," Brekken continued. "If this creates any new questions please don’t hesitate to contact me or anyone in the district office."
