Negotiating Merit Pay Provisions for Administrators.
Poll, Dwayne C.
The speaker begins his presentation by reviewing the literature on merit programs, both for teachers and for administrators, and summarizing the pros and cons of such programs. He then discusses the development of the merit pay program operating in his district. The initial and most important step in planning that program was developing a comprehensive job description for each administrative position in the district. The second step was the training of all administrators in the use of management by objectives (MBO) techniques. The MBO program included performance agreements between the supervisors and the person being supervised. The sample performance agreement included consists of five sections--behavioral objectives, classification of the objectives, the steps or procedures for carrying out the objectives, the nature of the monitoring of progress, and the requirements that the supervisor must supply if the person being evaluated is to accomplish his or her objectives. The third step was developing the district plan to be presented to the administrators' bargaining unit. The plan that was agreed to is described. (Author/IRT)
