Multi-week presentation to provide details on plan that will celebrate great teaching

CASTLE ROCK –The Douglas County School District will be providing videos and information to help educate employees, parents and community members about the Pay for Performance framework that has been created, some of the steps already taken towards implentation and the vision moving forward.
The Douglas County School District (DCSD) is once leading the way in education reform—launching a new Pay for Performance system, which better celebrates our amazing educators and employees for their great work.
The new Pay for Performance framework demonstrates how the new system would work. Teachers that are effective and highly effective will have opportunities for pay increases and bonuses in the future. Those that are not will receive feedback and training to improve their skills. Opportunities for professional development through coaching and training will, however, be available to all employees, ensuring that even those employees that are exemplary become examples for others in their field.

Over the next several weeks we will be providing further detail about each area of Pay for Performance. A schedule is below:

Week 1 - Overview of the Pay for Performance Compensation System
Week 2 - Market Pay and Merit/Market Increases or Raise
Week 3 - CITE, Pathways and Balanced Assessment System
Week 4 - World Class Education Targets & Bonus
Week 5 - Career Pathways

More information about the District's Pay for Performance System is available at
