Packard, Richard D.; Dereshiwsky, Mary
This document reports on an assessment of the 5-year Arizona Career Ladders Pilot-Test Teacher Incentive Program. Research and evaluation of the program were conducted in the 14 presently participating districts. A model was developed of essential organizational components which must be functioning at healthy levels for effective operation. The components are: (1) focus factors--student achievement and teacher development and leadership; (2) critical support factors--teacher and administrator evaluation, motivation, professional input and ownership, and program designs and structures; and (3) professional networks--state financing and funding, and legislative guidelines. Program participants were asked to complete a survey which assessed their perceptions of the impact and appropriateness of the Career Ladder program in these key organizational areas. A summary of results is presented; charts detail the motivators and demotivators listed on the organizational readiness assessment model. (JD)
