    Sec. 2-3.103. Salary and benefit survey. For each school year commencing on or after January 1, 1992, the State Board of Education shall conduct, in each school district, a school district salary and benefits survey covering the district's certificated and educational support personnel. However, the collection of information covering educational support personnel must be limited to districts with 1,000 or more students enrolled.
    A survey form shall be developed and furnished by the State Board of Education to each school district on or before October 1 of the school year covered by the survey, and each school district shall submit a completed survey to the State Board of Education on or before February 1 of the school year covered by the survey.
    The State Board of Education shall compile, by April 30 of the school year covered by the survey, a statewide salary and benefit survey report based upon the surveys completed and submitted for that school year by the individual school districts as required by this Section, and shall make the survey report available to all school districts and to all "employee organizations" as defined in Section 2 of the Illinois Educational Labor Relations Act.
    The data required to be reported by each school district on the salary and benefits survey developed and furnished under this Section for the school year covered by the survey shall include, but shall not be limited to, the following:
        (1) the district's estimated fall enrollment;
        (2) with respect to both its certificated and
    
educational support personnel employees:
            (A) whether the district has a salary schedule,
        
salary policy but no salary schedule, or no salary policy and no salary schedule;
            (B) when each such salary schedule or policy of
        
the district was or will be adopted;
            (C) whether there is a negotiated agreement
        
between the school board and any teacher, educational support personnel or other employee organization and, if so, the affiliation of the local of such organization, together with the month and year of expiration of the negotiated agreement and whether it contains a fair share provision; and if there is no such negotiated agreement but the district does have a salary schedule or policy, a brief explanation of the manner in which each such salary schedule or policy was developed prior to its adoption by the school board, including a statement of whether any meetings between the school board and the superintendent leading up to adoption of the salary schedule or policy were based upon, or were conducted without any discussions between the superintendent and the affected teachers, educational support personnel or other employees;
            (D) whether the district's salary program,
        
policies or provisions are based upon merit or performance evaluation of individual teachers, educational support personnel or other employees, and whether they include: severance pay provisions; early retirement incentives; sick leave bank provisions; sick leave accumulation provisions and, if so, to how many days; personal, business or emergency leave with pay and, if so, the number of days; or direct reimbursement in whole or in part for expenses, such as tuition and materials, incurred in acquiring additional college credit;
            (E) whether school board paid or tax sheltered
        
retirement contributions are included in any existing salary schedule or policy of the school district; what percent (if any) of the salary of each different certified and educational support personnel employee classification (using the employee salary which reflects the highest regularly scheduled step in that classification on the salary schedule or policy of the district) is school board paid to an employee retirement system; the highest scheduled salary and the level of education or training required to reach the highest scheduled salary in each certified and educational support personnel employee classification; using annual salaries from the school board's salary schedule or policy for each certified and educational support personnel employee classification (and excluding from such salaries items of individual compensation resulting from extra-curricular duties, employment beyond the regular school year and longevity service pay, but including additional compensation such as grants and cost of living bonuses that are received by all employees in a classification or by all employees in a classification who are at the maximum experience level), the beginning, maximum and specified intermediate salaries reported to an employee retirement system (including school board paid or tax sheltered retirement contributions, but excluding fringe benefits) for each educational or training category within each certified and educational support personnel employee classification; and the completed years of experience required to reach such maximum regularly scheduled and highest scheduled salaries;

            (G) for each dental, disability, hospitalization,
        
life, prescription or vision insurance plan, cafeteria plan or other fringe benefit plan sponsored by the school board: (i) a statement of whether such plan is available to full time teachers or other certificated personnel covered by a district salary schedule or policy, whether such plan is available to full time educational support personnel covered by a district salary schedule or policy, and whether all full time employees to whom coverage under such plan is available are entitled to receive the same benefits under that plan; and (ii) the total annual cost of coverage under that plan for a covered full time employee who is at the highest regularly scheduled step on the salary schedule or policy of the district applicable to such employee, the percent of that total annual cost paid by the school board, the total annual cost of coverage under that plan for the family of that employee, and the percent of that total annual cost for family coverage paid by the school board.
