The Stevens Point School Board on Monday will consider the possibility of reinstating Board committees- and possibly holding the meetings at rotating school locations.
According to the agenda for the May 19 School Board meeting- which is only 19 pages long- the Board will also appoint members to the district Technology Steering Committee.
The bulk of Monday’s meeting will center around a presentation and workshop from Charlie Carlson of Carlson Dettman- a consulting firm hired by the district last year to complete a study of the district’s compensation system.
The findings of Carlson’s study indicate, according to district records, that base pay in the district is competitive but the district needs a new plan to “provide adequate compensation for early career teachers, establish meaningful objective levels of professional accomplishment, and lay the groundwork for future increases related to performance when a performance management system has been implemented, all administrators and staff trained, and the system is tested and proven.”
The study also recommends the district begin using a pay-for-performance model for teachers.
The meeting begins at SPASH, 1201 Northpoint Drive, at 6:30 PM. The public is welcome.
