Why does DCPS implement a performance-based pay system?
DCPS and the WTU agreed in the most recent teachers’ contract to develop and implement a performance-based pay system because we felt it was essential to demonstrate – in the boldest way possible – how much we value the work you do. IMPACTplus is the product of this groundbreaking collaboration.
For the first time in the history of DCPS, outstanding educators will be paid what they deserve. In fact, some will see their compensation more than double.
We recognize that you did not choose to enter the field of education for monetary reasons. But we also recognize that you deserve to be compensated as true professionals.
