School Board takes no action on merit pay 

Parents and students in this school district deserve good teachers who are well paid.  Consequently, it is disappointing that our school district is not participating in the New Mexico Public Education Department’s (NMPED) Incentive Pay Pilot (ped.state.nm.us/ped/RFPDocs/).

A statement in a Los Alamos Monitor story (July 10) about the Incentive Pay Pilot Program incorrectly implies that NMPED will control and administer this pilot. 

However, the Incentive Pay Pilot Application itself states that it is up to each participating school district to design an incentive pay model. If the application is accepted, funding is provided by NMPED.

A school district’s application must include how incentive pay awards will be distributed, the qualifications necessary to earn financial rewards, and the amounts involved. By choosing to take no action, the School Board is passing up an opportunity to participate in the development of this component of the state teacher evaluation plan. 

The Incentive Pay Pilot goals as stated in the Request for Application are to:

• Allow districts and charters the ability to pilot an incentive pay program for teachers and principals
