Notes, presentations and outcomes from the ECS 2006 National Forum on Education Policy, Session 347, The New Age of Compensating Teachers.

Welcome to The ECS Redesigned Teacher Compensation Database

The Education Commission of the States has created an interactive online database with research on a number of redesigned teacher compensation programs. Although this is not an exhaustive list of redesigned teacher compensation programs, a diverse array of program types and elements are covered. To be considered for inclusion in this database programs needed to have incentives in the form of a base pay increase or bonus for teachers AND needed to link those incentives to some measure of student achievement, or needed to have an "at-risk" component.
