Consideration of Approval of
an Incentive Stipend Through
the Title II- A Grant
Read the idea:
Given the accountability pressures through NCLB, especially at high-
risk, high-needs schools, this stipend is an encouragement to attract
and retain unit administrators at our inner-city high-needs schools to
promote academic student achievement. Teachers at schools
receiving a performing label through AZ LEARNS receive 301 monies
as an encouragement to promote academic student achievement.
Unit Administrators do not receive and are not eligible to receive
stipend through 301 monies. However, the federal government has
approved the incentive stipend at the federal level for AYP only. Unit
Administrator that have schools making AYP according to any of the
formulas excluding the “N” count criteria which indicates the number
of students tested. This adjustment will, in fact, make it equitable for
all unit administrator to received the stipend regardless of the
population size of the school. This stipend is based on student
achievement and not based on student population size of the school.
This amendment has been approved and is effective for the 2009-
2010 school year.
