The state Board of Education will vote here today on Hillsborough County schools’ plan to pay 5 percent performance bonuses to its top 25 percent of teachers and administrators.
A “yes” vote would make Hillsborough the first district in the state approved for the pay-for-performance plan required by 2006 legislation, Florida Education Commissioner John Winn said Monday. Winn said he is recommending approval because the plan meets state criteria of awarding teachers for individual students’ learning gains and evaluates teachers by category, including “outstanding.”

This is part or the “good ole boy network” of Hillsbrough County. Do some investigating. With all the relatives in admin and teaching, they will all get the raise. What about the Special Ed teachers that have no scale to go by. Their students are emotionally and/or physically unable to function. Are these teachers kept out of the loop because of “under performing students”? What about all the other teachers not covered, Media specialists for example. Do these people work less? Unless everyone is covered it is a BAD IDEA HILLSBOROUGH!

This is a great idea. How best to show someone that you recognize and appreciate a job well done? Verbal and written accolades are fine, but money makes a tangible difference in people’s lives and says, “You’re worth it!”
