Strategic Compensation Pilot

We believe that in order to provide real results for students we must have quality teachers in every classroom, provide a 21st Century education so that our students can compete in the global economy and accountability from all stakeholders in our community.

In order to achieve these goals, we must try to do things in new and different ways and that is why we are very excited to be part of this five year, $32 million Teacher Incentive Fund grant to pilot strategic compensation in Jefferson County. JCEA collaborated with the school district and the Jefferson County Administrators Association to secure this federal grant.

The project is being implemented in 20 elementary and middle schools. The pilot will study the impact of increased compensation, additional teacher support and planning time on student achievement.  Educators will be rewarded for meeting individual, team and school goals as well as receiving successful evaluations and taking on leadership roles.
