Instructional Personnel

 

1 - Who determines how the differentiated pay will be awarded?

A – A committee of 6 (3 union / 3 admin)

2 – How will the awards be determined?

A – The committee will determine the ‘buckets’ or groups of instructional personnel that will receive funds based on one or more of the following areas: additional responsibilities, school demographics, level of job difficulty, district or state defined critical shortage areas (these areas are listed on the Differentiated Pay Plan Rubric)

 

3 – How will district critical shortage areas (hard to staff) be determined?
