Grant to help ZCS boost pay for top teachers

More than $700,000 available to supplement teachers’ pay.

Zionsville Community Schools received a $787,200 grant last week that will put a little more money in the pocket of top-performing teachers.

The money was from the Indiana Excellence in Performance for Teachers grant to help implement a new teacher evaluation law put into place last year called RISE. The model, developed by the Indiana Teacher Evaluation Cabinet, was used over the course of a year. RISE uses multiple sources of information to paint a fair, accurate, and comprehensive representation of a teacher’s performance.

Although performance-based pay is now required by law, funds to implement the new law were not provided outside the grant program.

Scott Robison, superintendent of Zionsville Community Schools, said the grant can only be applied to comply with the new performance pay portion of the teacher compensation model.
