New Mexico grants Santa Fe Public Schools $3.8M for teacher incentives

The state Public Education Department is giving Santa Fe Public Schools $3.8 million to increase teacher salaries as part of a pay-for-performance pilot program for the 2014-15 school year. The grant is part of a one-time allocation of $7.2 million that is being made available to districts to reward effective teachers and principals, either individually or as a group within a school, with stipends of at least $1,000. Eligibility requirements include adhering to state or district teacher-evaluation measurements. Teachers and schools must voluntarily apply for a share of the money.
