Teachers currently are paid based on years of service and advanced degrees. But the board voted late Thursday to determine their pay based on points accumulated in their two most recent evaluations.
Classroom performance will constitute 50 percent of an evaluation while student test scores will account for 35 percent and student surveys the resulting 15 percent.
The Dallas Morning News reports (http://bit.ly/1jPdJ93 ) the vote is considered a significant win for Superintendent Mike Miles' reform efforts.
Critics question whether the move will have any effect on student performance.
