ASD to entice teachers with salaries, bonuses

Posted:

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - The Achievement School District is rolling out a new pay schedule in an effort to entice high-performance teachers.

The Commercial Appeal (http://bit.ly/UdsyEw) reports a teacher with a fresh degree could earn $62,500 after six years of teaching with the ASD - and that doesn't include bonus pay of up to $7,000 for the best performing schools.

The base salary is $16,000 more per year than Shelby County schools pay for the same amount of experience.

The Achievement School District runs low-performing schools across the state with a goal of significantly improving student performance over five years.

Six schools in Memphis are assigned to the Achievement School District this year, but that number will double next year.
