Don't count that performance pay yet. The economic downturn has forced the USOE to hold back the $20 Million one time money that was to be paid to districts who made a plan to pay for performance. In most districts the payment would be between $350 and $500 for this year only. "In a perfect world where we had loads of revenue no one would want to cut anything..." Larry Shumway, State Deputy Supt. In some districts teachers have been working hard to accomplish goals and tasks and now will not get paid.
