PHOENIX — A Phoenix school district and Maricopa County officials have
agreed to end a joint teacher-incentive program.
The Arizona Republic reported the county Board of
Supervisors voted Wednesday to stop using federal funds to reward and train
educators in the Phoenix Union High School District.
The county has more than $51 million from a federal Teacher Incentive Fund for
evaluating and rewarding teachers and principals in all six districts it
oversees. The district’s portion will go back to the federal government.
District Superintendent Kent Scribner said teachers in his district want
incentives for departments or groups rather than individual incentives, which
the county’s program requires.
Scribner said the district will apply for a U.S. Department of Education Race
to the Top grant.
The agreement will end Aug. 5.
