DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION
School District Performance Measures
[29 Pa.B. 5526]
Under legislation that was passed by the General Assembly in June 1999, the Department of Education is authorized to implement another new incentive program that builds upon the success of the School Performance Funding (SPF) initiative and focuses squarely on the individual performance of professional employes: The School District Performance Measures (SDPM) program.
To foster the continued development and implementation of SDPM for professional employes, $1 million is available in the 1999-2000 school year to provide funding for local SDPM initiatives. The purpose of this grant program is to provide incentives to school districts, AVTSs and intermediate units (IUs) for programs that reward individual teachers and other professional employes based on the quality of their professional performance.
One million dollars will be awarded to school districts, AVTSs and IUs proportionate to the impact of the local SDPM plan. Impact is determined by a combination of the number of professional employes affected and manner in which they are affected. Proposals will be accepted from school districts, AVTSs and IUs that have SDPM programs or intend to implement programs in the 1999-2000 school year.
Individuals can access the School District Performance Measures Request for Proposal (RFP) on the PDE website at http://www.pde.psu.edu under Issues and Initiatives. The RFP requires Adobe Acrobat Reader. The form portions of the document have been formatted so individuals can complete and print them while the document is open in Acrobat Reader.
Questions regarding this program should be directed to Tim Daniels in the Office of Educational Initiatives at (717) 705-2343.
