Leadership Premiums

2021-2022 Planning

Leadership Premium Plan 2021-2022

Leadership Premium Application Link 2021-2022

 

In spring of 2014, the Idaho Legislature approved HB 504 which allocated funds to districts to meet the outline of the Governor’s Task Force on Education which “would include additional salary that can be earned for fulfillment of leadership responsibilities, including such things as curriculum development work, chairing collaboration teams, mentoring, and other responsibilities that the districts may determine…This approach allows districts to determine the leadership responsibilities that are needed and allows teachers to select the roles they wish to fulfill and to be compensated for them.”

 

To meet that expectation Preston School District #201 will enact a plan for awarding these premiums to teachers as follows below.

 

All certified, non-administrative staff members are eligible to apply for the award.  The application for the award is attached. The following duties would NOT be considered for the award:

  1. Duties for which a teacher is paid already
  2. Duties which are part of a teacher’s existing job description
  3. Duties related to student activities or athletics

 

Preston School District positions eligible for leadership premiums along with the Leadership Premiums Plan will be presented to the school board for approval on or before the September board meeting.

 

There are limited shares available for duties that are not listed on the attached share schedule.  If you see a leadership opportunity you would like to be considered for, please fill out the application. (Available in school office or appendix of this document)

 

A number of positions have been assigned prior to the start of the is school year since much work is required of some groups well before students arrive. Additionally, some positions may carry over multiple years so the familiarity of the work can bring about greater effectiveness. With some roles already filled, open positions will be indicated and teachers may apply to their principal for those roles.

 

After applications are submitted to the supervising principal for verification, the applications will be delivered to the superintendent who will work with building administrators to finalize shares.  Teachers will be notified of the decision.

 

After completion of approved duties, building principals and district supervisors will be responsible for certifying that duties were carried out in a manner consistent with the approved application.

 

Premiums will be distributed to teachers as a part of the May payroll period. 

 

This plan will be evaluated in the spring of 2022 to make necessary adjustments before the 2022-2023 school year.
