Janesville school district considers incentive pay

JANESVILLE, Wis. -

Principals and other administrators in the Janesville School District could soon have the chance to earn raises of up to 6 percent.

A Janesville Gazette report said the school board is expected to discuss the proposed incentive-pay system at its meeting Tuesday.

The new system would rate administrators on skills, ability, and performance, rather than award pay increases based on experience. District spokesman Keith Pennington said if all 35 administrators received the full 6 percent it would cost about $200,000 per year.

The directors, principals, assistant principals, coordinators, and supervisors who would be covered by the program have an average annual salary of $98,000.

Human resources director Steve Sperry said administrators' pay was frozen in 2009, 2011, and 2012. He says they received a 2.25 percent raise in 2010.
