Each board of trustees shall develop a plan for awarding local pay for performance shares in consultation with certificated employees.

No employee shall receive more than one (1.00) local share.
Senate Bill 1110 Pay for Performance Questions to Consider Local share awards shall be based on one or more of the following measures: Student test scores Student graduation rate Student dropout rate Percent of graduates attending postsecondary education or entering military service Making federally approved yearly progress Number of students successfully completing dual credit or advanced placement classes Percent of students involved in extracurricular activities Class Projects Portfolios Successful completion of special student assignments Parental involvement Teacher-assigned grades Student attendance rate Other measure determined by District and approved by SDE
Pay for Performance Timeline September 1, 2011 – School Boards must decide on the local measures of Student Achievement. November 15, 2012 – The state will distribute Student Achievement bonus funds to Districts. ($38 million) December 15, 2012 – Districts will distribute Student Achievement bonuses to eligible certificated staff.
Pay for Performance Timeline June 11, 2013 – School Boards must choose hard-to-fill positions off of State Board of Education list for next school year’s pay-for-performance payments, or apply to the State Board of Education for a waiver. Ten years worth of data on hard to fill: – Math – Special Education – ESL Endorsement – Science If Board of Trustees determines that it will be unable to fill position even with the bonus funds, it may use the funds to pay for courses that allow an individual to become qualified in the desired area.
Pay for Performance Timeline November 15, 2013 (and each Nov. 15 thereafter) – The state will distribute Student Achievement, Hard-to-Fill Position and Leadership Award bonus funds to Districts. ($51.3 million) Board of Trustees may determine leadership award recipients and duties at any time – Leadership Awards are to be paid upon completion of the additional duty.
Pay for Performance Implementation Leadership awards can be given to individuals. Hard to fill positions must be given to a category of positions. Districts cannot single out one teacher in math, etc. Rewards for hard to fill can vary by subject. Student achievement awards are given school wide.
Pay for Performance FAQs What happens if a teacher earns a bonus but moves to another district or state, retires, or cannot be found? Forward the bonus to the teacher’s new address (if a new address exists). If the teacher cannot be found by the time the next year’s bonuses are awarded, the funds should be rolled into the next year’s available bonus funds and redistributed.
Pay for Performance FAQs If a district wants to amend a previously submitted plan, how and when can they do that? A new plan may be submitted each year by the annual September 1 deadline. In addition, SDE will allow districts to revise a submitted plan mid-year to change the level of each goal and the local share awards for each goal (but not the measure used), within the first 30 days of any term.
Pay for Performance FAQs Where do the funds for performance bonuses for non-building administrators, for contracts signed on or after July 1, 2011? Are these in addition to base pay? Is this a bonus that the state is not funding? These dollars will come from the funds that school districts allocate for non-building administrator salaries. If no new funds are available, they would need to be carved out of the money that the state currently provides for administrator salaries. Essentially, it is a requirement to spend state funds differently.
