MISSION: TO SERVE EVERY STUDENT WITH EXCELLENCE AS THE STANDARD

11-20-2007 Organization of the Board - Regular Meeting
Agenda Item #37


Title
F-4. School Recognition Bonuses

Discussion

Past Experience indicates that a significant amount of funds will be expended on bonuses for employees. It is the intent that this single agenda item provide authorization for the 75 qualifying schools to pay employees bonus amounts which will be determined jointly by their respective SACs (School Advisory Councils) and staff members. Approval of this item authorizes Human Resources to set up the bonuses for payment based on the decisions made at each of the 75 schools. This process, as last year, alleviates individual schools from having to generate information in order for Curriculum Services to complete school 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 kept informed as to the planned expenditures of the total funds.

A listing of the 75 schools is attached for reference along with the 7 charters.



Recommendation
Authorize bonuses to be paid to staff members of the 75 schools that will be receiving School Recognition funds based on their school grade for 2006-07.
