Section 380.1250

THE REVISED SCHOOL CODE (EXCERPT)
Act 451 of 1976


380.1250 Compensation including job performance and accomplishments as factors; effect of collective bargaining agreement; length of service or achievement of advanced degree as factor.

Sec. 1250.

(1) Except as otherwise provided in this section, a school district, public school academy, or intermediate school district shall implement and maintain a method of compensation for its teachers and school administrators that includes job performance and job accomplishments as a significant factor in determining compensation and additional compensation. The assessment of job performance shall incorporate a rigorous, transparent, and fair evaluation system that evaluates a teacher's or school administrator's performance at least in part based upon data on student growth as measured by assessments and other objective criteria.

(2) If a collective bargaining agreement is in effect for teachers or school administrators of a school district, public school academy, or intermediate school district as of January 4, 2010, and if that collective bargaining agreement prevents compliance with subsection (1), then subsection (1) does not apply to that school district, public school academy, or intermediate school district until after the expiration of that collective bargaining agreement.

(3) For teachers and school administrators who are hired by a community district after the accountability system under section 390 has been implemented, the community district shall implement and maintain a method of compensation that includes job performance and job accomplishments as the primary factor in determining compensation and additional compensation. A teacher's or school administrator's job performance shall be evaluated based on the teacher's annual evaluation under section 1249 or the school administrator's annual evaluation under section 1249b, as applicable.

(4) For teachers and school administrators who are hired by a community district after the accountability system under section 390 has been implemented, the community district shall not use length of service or achievement of an advanced degree as a factor in compensation levels or adjustments in compensation except as follows:

(a) For a teacher with a secondary level teaching certificate who has a subject area endorsement and who teaches in that subject area, an advanced degree achieved in that subject area may be considered as a factor in the teacher's base compensation.

(b) For a teacher with an elementary level teaching certificate who teaches in an elementary grade, an advanced degree in elementary education may be considered as a factor in the teacher's base compensation.
