1 2008–2009 ASPIRE Verification and Linkage Process An Introduction for Campus-Based Staff Members

2 Copyright ©2009. Battelle for Kids. All staff members who are assigned to a campus during the 2008–2009 school year will need to verify their tentative eligibility and award categorization for the 2008–2009 ASPIRE Award Program. All award information is tentative as the year has not yet been completed. Additionally, some award categories cannot be completely determined until after the linkage process. Who Should Complete Linkage and Verification?

3 Copyright ©2009. Battelle for Kids. Eligibility determines that you have met all of the rules of the program. Note: If you choose not to receive an award, you must opt-out. All employees were opted-in for 2008–2009 regardless of previous years selection. Categorization (A-K) tells us how to apply the award model to your role. Categorization is subject to majority of day and the majority of the year. Category A/B require linkage. No other category requires linkage. Attendance bonus as of April 15 assuming no more hours missed. Verifying Tentative Award Eligibility & Categorization

Reading, language, math, science, and social studies To ensure the reports accuracy, these teachers must verify student mobility and the amount of instructional time they provided students in their classes throughout the year.

13 Copyright ©2009. Battelle for Kids. Set Student Start and End Dates Make adjustments to the starting and ending months to indicate each students time spent in your classroom. If a student was in your class, moved to another, and returned, use the selectors to represent the total number of months he/she was a student in your class. To save time, you can set the same value for all students.

14 Copyright ©2009. Battelle for Kids. Set Percentage of Instruction In most cases, teachers will set all students at 100%. Team teaching situations might share student instruction at 50% each. A special education teacher may claim a student for as little as 20%. See the Special Cases document for more information.
