A description of the derivation of a linear programming salary evaluation model and its application to a school district salary structure. In this illustrative application, the model yields optimal solutions (salary schedules) which (1) are consistent with both the imposed hierarchical and budgetary constraints of a school district, (2) consider nine factors in the salary evaluation, and (3) maximize the school district's desired criterion of effectiveness, i.e., maximization of the highest teacher salary. The rigor and logic of the analytical techniques used can also aid in dealing with some of the political aspects of developing a salary schedule that would provide a career-oriented, experienced staff. 34 pp. Ref.
