Teacher Pay-for-Performance in School Turnaround: How Bonuses and Differentiated Pay Scales Can Help Support School Turnaround. Meeting the Turnaround Challenge: Strategies, Resources & Tools to Transform a Framework into Practice
Mass Insight Education (NJ1)
Given the importance of good teaching and leadership for school success, turnaround schools should think carefully about how to structure professional environments that reward and motivate excellence. A system of "Pay-for-Contribution" that includes tools such as hard-to-staff and skill shortage pay, performance pay, and/or retention pay, will help attract and retain the type of human capital needed for successful turnarounds. Turnaround schools and clusters provide a perfect setting to implement innovative, non-traditional approaches to teacher and principal compensation. The flexible operating conditions of turnaround schools will allow such pay-for contribution methods to be incubated and, if successful, implemented more widely in other schools and systems.
