Teacher Pay for Performance - Prop 301 

 
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.
 
To be eligible for Kyrene Classroom Site Fund (Prop 301) Pay for Performance, a teacher must:
  • be employed in Kyrene School District as a teacher in accordance with a.R.S. § 15-977 during the current school year.  (A Kyrene teacher is defined as an individual who is compensated on a teacher's salary schedule, holds a valid teacher certification from Arizona Department of Education and teaches at least 50% or the time), and
  • have a 15-16 instructional practice rating of effective or highly effective to receive the awards for the 15-16 measures, and/or
  • have a 16-17 instructional practice rating of effective or highly effective to received the awards for the 16-17 measures.
