Agenda Item #16
State Required School Recognition Bonuses
Past experience indicates that a significant portion of the School Recognition funds will be expended on bonuses for employees. It is the intent that this agenda item provide authorization for the 50 qualifying schools to pay employee bonus amounts, which have been determined jointly by their respective SACs (School Advisory Councils) and staff members. Approval of this item authorizes Human Resources to set up the payment of bonuses, based on the decision made at each of the 50 qualifying schools. This process alleviates individual schools from having to generate separate Board agenda items. This does not eliminate the obligation of the schools to provide detailed information to both Human Resources and Budgeting. Approval of this item will allow for payment of the bonuses to occur at the earliest possible date. As in the past, the School Board will be informed as to the planned expenditures of the total funds.
A list of the 50 qualifying schools and the 4 Charter Schools, along with their respective award amounts, is attached for reference.
Authorize bonuses to be paid to staff members at each of the 50 qualifying schools that will be receiving School Recognition funds based on their respective school grade for 2014-15.
