301 Pay for Performance

In the fall of 2000, an initiative was passed by the residents of Arizona creating a funding stream for public education from sales tax. Since sales tax fluctuates, the monies available to school districts will fluctuate annually. The intent of the majority of the Proposition 301 K-12 funding is to 1) increase teachers’ salaries, 2) increase accountability among public educational institutions and 3) reward highly performing teachers.
 
A teacher who is new to Kyrene or who is returning from a leave, can receive 301 Pay for Performance compensation after successfully completing 6 hours of Alternative Kyrene Pay for Performance Plan (AKPPP) classes and project.  AKPPP classes are optional and not required as part of new teachers K-TIP contractual obligation.  AKPPP classes will be offered in January and February of 2016 and will require registration in Truenorthlogic.  Please contact Joy Fogarty x1275 for more information.
