Restrictive District Requirements Limited Participation in Performance Pay Systems, Report No. 07-01, January 2007
Full report in PDF format

While all 67 school districts have performance pay plans, these systems vary substantially and relatively few instructional personnel have received these awards. While performance pay plans generally have included FCAT results, most districts also have included other criteria not related to student performance, such as requiring that teachers perform other duties to qualify for awards. As a result, only 50 districts awarded performance pay to instructional personnel for the 2005‑06 school year, and only 8,747 persons received these awards, representing 4.9% of instructional personnel statewide.
