Marietta school district approves merit-based salary

MARIETTA, Ga. (AP) - A metro Atlanta school board has voted to develop a system to pay teachers based on performance instead of seniority.

The Marietta Board of Education unanimously approved the performance-based pay system this week and officials say it will be implemented during the 2015-16 school year.

Board chairman Randy Weiner told the Marietta Daily Journal (http://bit.ly/15yajiE ) they sent schools superintendent Emily Lembeck to faculty meetings to let teachers know what the change will mean for them.

A Massachusetts-based nonprofit the district hired last fall analyzed the way the district uses its money and presented the board with a 68-page report on how the district could reconfigure teacher salaries and the benefits that could come with such a move.

Weiner says the district's goal is to attract and retain highly-effective teachers.
