As federal and state K-12 education policy has shifted focus from educational inputs to outcomes, there has been increasing interest in changing educator compensation systems to support efforts to improve student achievement.  This paper addresses issues related to creating performance-pay systems to include basic principles for designing salary structures that incorporate performance pay, highlights two alternative systems, discusses transitioning to a new salary schedule, and provides a real-world example of the program in action. The paper also describes basic principles of performance-pay structures that districts and states that are implementing performance pay should consider.
