Teacher retention and incentives were recently approved by the Farmersville ISD School board.
In a new merit pay system, which is a test program implemented for two years, Farmersville ISD employees have the chance to receive additional pay based on student testing scores.
The merit pay, also termed as a stretch goal, would be $2,500 for any employee on a campus that scores from 90 percent to 100 percent as an average on domain 1 and 2 on STAAR or End of Course tests.
Domain 1 is the accountability scores themselves while domain 2 is a year’s growth per student from one year to the next.
Students third through 10th grade take STAAR exams while high school students take EOC exams.
