Ohio seeks to build on the momentum of recent educational reforms and invest in systems that support a culture of continuous improvement and commitment to bold, scaled and sustained reform by establishing effective educator compensation models and implementing new approaches for achieving teacher and leader effectiveness.
In September 2012, ODE released an RFP for proposals and opened it to all LEAs in the state. There were six applicants. Three LEAs and an ESC were awarded grants to work toward Alternative Compensation Models that are unique to their agencies. The recipients are:
Cleveland Municipal School District
Educational Service Center of Central Ohio Consortium
Oakwood City Schools
Perrysburg Exempted Village Schools
These agencies will begin designing and implementing Alternate Compensation Models as written in their approved proposals over the course of the next two years. We look forward to working with them in supporting their efforts.
The Ohio Department of Education alongside Battelle for Kids worked with several Local Education Agencies throughout Ohio during the course of the last year studying Alternative Compensation Systems and how they might apply to their own endeavors.
