“This is an opportunity for us to recognize the middle school staff for fulfilling the goals they have established for the school this year,” stated Gena Keller, superintendent, in a press release issued today (Aug. 22).

The money – totaling almost $213,000 —  will come from a state grant given to 13 school divisions, one of which was Fluvanna public schools.

The incentive payments will range from $500 to $5,000 per teacher. “The grant was designed using a tiered approach to compensate for increased student success rates in reading and math at the class, grade, and school levels, according to the release. “In order for teachers to be eligible, they must have a final evaluation rating of exemplary or proficient.”

“The Middle School staff will participate in a book study and work with consultants to develop student-centered problem-solving teams to better help students meet achievement goals,” according to the press release.

The goals is to achieve a 10 percent reduction in the SOL failure rate for reading or math and to have 65 percent of all students make “typical growth as measured by the NWEA Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) assessment for the 2013-14 school year.”

This is the second time Fluvanna County Public Schools has received a compensation grant from the governor’s office. During the 2011-2012 school year, Fluvanna was part of the Performance Pay Pilot Initiative. Teachers who participated in this pilot received additional compensation of up to $3,000. — Carlos Santos
