PERRYSBURG — A new performance-based pay system was among the terms of school contracts approved for several groups Monday.
The school board approved deals for the 300 teachers of the Perrysburg Education Association, and separately for Superintendent Tom Hosler and Treasurer Matt Feasel.
The teachers' contract includes a 1.25-percent raise in each of three years. They had been working on a contract that expired over the summer which had a two-year pay freeze.
An optional alternative compensation plan will use a point system to determine eligibility for yearly bonuses or pay increases.
A one-time incentive awards teachers a $1,500 for signing on this school year, or $1,000 for joining in 2014-2015. The bonuses are paid from state grant money that must be used this year, Hosler said.
Teachers may choose to remain in the traditional salary structure based on experience and education, which was stipulated at the state level until the biennium budget removed the requirement earlier this year, Hosler said.
The 1.25-percent annual raise is part of the contract regardless of which system they choose.
The board adopted a similar plan for administrators, who do not receive a bonus or have a separate option. Their salary increases will be equally based on evaluations and student performance.
The teachers' deal also included changes to the reduction in force policy that takes evaluations into account in addition to seniority, as well as health plan and school calendar changes.
Contracts for Hosler and Feasel each run four years, paying $129,350 and $101,490 respectively. Three years ago, each forfeited a scheduled 2.95-percent raise and agreed to a two-year pay freeze.
