During the months of negotiating, Polk Education Association President Marianne Capoziello worried the union would have to declare an impasse because of struggles with bargaining. The district and the union had very different ideas about teacher evaluation, and Capoziello complained that the district was inhibiting progress by canceling meetings.

"It's pretty miraculous considering where we were for a while there," Capoziello said.

Later in the month, the union will be collecting employee votes on the teacher, paraeducator and educational support personnel agreements.If approved, employees in all three categories would move up a step on the salary schedule, and salary steps would be raised.Teachers also will be considering approval of a state-mandated performance pay salary schedule, adjustments to 2015-16 teacher evaluations, and a beta test for a brand new evaluation system for the 2016-17 school year that would affect teachers who do not teach classes measured by state standardized exams.During the months of negotiating, Polk Education Association President Marianne Capoziello worried the union would have to declare an impasse because of struggles with bargaining.

"We've seen some exciting and promising signs."Which teachers or schools are eligible to participate in the beta test has not been decided yet, Capoziello said. Beginning in 2017-18, all teachers not covered by a state-mandated test will have the option to use a student achievement objective.Student performance is one-third of the evaluation score; observations of instructional practice make up almost 62 percent of the score; and self-evaluation makes up 5 percent.That formula is adjusted to include an individual goal for instructional employees such as library/media specialists, speech/language pathologists, psychologists and social workers.TEACHER SALARIES Teachers this year are moving to a performance pay that is based on their evaluations, which are partly based on student learning gains. That comes after the state required school districts to create a performance pay system.If approved, all Polk teachers would receive a step increase. The district would give them a retroactive raise for the 2015-16 school year. In addition, steps would increase. Teachers being moved to the performance pay scale will also receive a raise. The amounts of the raises vary.The performance pay schedule affects all new teachers and teachers who were still on an annual contract as of July 1, 2011.Other teachers would remain on the grandfathered salary schedule unless they choose to move to the performance schedule.Capoziello said she is concerned about the effect the state's performance pay requirement will have on teachers."Teachers question every day the fairness of what (the state) is doing," she said.The grandfathered salary schedule for Polk teachers is based on years of experience. The highest salary for teachers with a bachelor's degree would be $61,072 for 27 or more years of experience.
