How well do you know your contract?

Teachers that have some kind of student growth from last year can apply for the Performance Bonus. Growth does not have to come from a standardized test or be related to your SGM. You can apply if you can show that your students are performing “significantly “above” expectations”. HR will be sending out the application and process soon. Performance Bonus information is on pg. 44 of your contract. Check the resources page on the website or click here.

Moratorium Declared on State School Takeovers New Ohio Graduation Rules Ready


“The state budget deal imposing a moratorium on new Academic Distress Commissions tacitly admits what educators, parents and students have known all along—that state takeovers don’t work. Sadly, the legislature leaves the communities of Youngstown, Lorain and East Cleveland languishing under a failing law until they can finally figure out how to give districts struggling with high levels of poverty the support they need. As we continue the fight to pass HB 154 to repeal state takeovers and restore local control, I am deeply disappointed in the decision to allow CEOs to continue wreaking havoc on our schools.”
