Document Number: 9456A Big Apple for Educators: New York City's Experiment with Schoolwide Performance Bonuses: Final Evaluation Report - In 2007-08 New York City Department of Education and the United Federation of Teachers implemented the Performance Bonus Program in a random sample of the city's high-needs public schools to determine if student performance could be improved through school-based financial incentives. After a three year pilot, the RAND Corporation conducted a study to determine the programís effects. Researchers found that the program did not, by itself, improve student achievement.
