Highlights of new teacher contract

November 18, 2010|By Baltimore Sun

--A 2 percent, retroactive pay increase and a $1,500 stipend will take effect in this school year.

--Pay in the last two years of the contract will be based on a yet-to-be-determined system that ties student performance to teacher evaluations.

--Teachers will climb a four-tiered career ladder that will pay some more than $100,000 and encourage more pursuit of professional development and school-based leadership.

--All schools will employ "school-based options" in the third year of the contract -- a plan under which 80 percent of teachers in a school could help set working conditions not outlined in the general contract, such as a longer workday or more planning time.
