And for this rather broad but very deep and detailed skill set, they're prepared to pay how much?

LOL...you may be right John. That's what happens when educators try to write a job description for something outside of their realm of expertise. But the school is legit and I'm willing to bet that the pay is more than fair. When I was a public school teacher my daughter was making at least $20k more annually than I was and she had class sizes half the size of mine. Down side it is Silicon Valley and cost of living will be higher. I have no idea what the actual pay is though. Just passing it on in case someone somewhere is interested.
