Profiles of Merit Pay Provisions in Ohio School Districts
Willis, Chris; Ingle, W. Kyle
Leadership and Policy in Schools, v17 n1 p78-114 2018
A small number of districts in Ohio from a variety of locales have adopted merit pay provisions. Using Springer's (2009) taxonomy of teacher compensation, we analyzed compensation provisions of these districts. We asked: What are the characteristics of these districts? What criteria are used to determine merit? Who is determining who receives merit pay? Our analysis reveals that there is wide variation in the design and specifics of these programs. Like Kolbe and Strunk (2012), who developed a typology of incentive programs, our examination of merit pay provisions in Ohio generated a typology of merit pay programs.
