SUBJECT: Performance Pay Committee Report. GOVERNANCE POLICY: EL-9. ACTION/INFO: Action TIME NEEDED: 15 min PERTINENT FACTS: 1. Questions/answers from the Board on the long-term modeling of the proposed performance pay system. RECOMMENDATION/ MOTION: Move to approve the recommendations of the Performance Pay Committee as presented. ORIGINATOR: Jason Glass APPROVED: DATE: AGENDA REQUEST Long Term Budgetary Modeling for the Proposed Performance Pay System Phil Onofrio Chief Financial Officer & Jason E. Glass Director of Human Resources April 16, 2008 Introduction A major goal of the Performance-Based Compensation Steering Committee was to reform the Eagle County Schools compensation system into a more simple and competitive system. To create a system that rewarded excellence, improved morale and that could be sustained over time. While not perfect, we believe the proposed system is fair, competitive, and more flexible than both the prior system and the traditional step and level system. We live in an industry which compensates teachers based on experience and longevity with little acknowledgment of performance. A fundamental charge to the committee was to base increases in compensation on performance as well as to compete against districts that reward aging with salary increases. Analyzing the Competitive Systems As we compete against standard step and level, or lock-step, systems we will briefly explain how increases are generally calculated in those systems. First, a standard step and level system increases pay at between 2.0% and 2.5% annually for each year a person is employed as a teacher in the district. This step refers to the difference between (for example) year 3 and year 4 on a typical salary schedule. In addition to this amount, inflation is added annually – usually adding between 2% and 3% on top of the step increase. Finally, the district negotiates with the teachers union for an additional increase, generally between 1% and 3%. Negotiations between the district and the union usually begin with inflation as a base since this is generally not considered an increase (or raise) but just keeps the system up with changes in the economy. The total of these three components can easily exceed 6% – none of which are based on performance. To sum up, in the typical system the step and level increase and the inflation increase are generally expected – only the negotiated increase is identified as a raise. After a district settles with teachers the union, representatives from both sides issue a press release saying they negotiated an increase of 2.2% for all teachers. In reality, an individual teachers salary could increase by over 6% annually. A specific example from an actual step and level system is shown below. For example, a teacher with a BA making $34,948 in their first year moves to $36,420 in the second year. This accounts for the step for this teacher. Next, the whole table is adjusted for a negotiated component (shown here at 2.2%) which brings a second year teacher to $37,221, an increase of $2,273 (or 6.5%) for getting rehired. However this is commonly referred to as a 2.2% raise. The following tables are from actual step and level systems demonstrate these increases with a 2.2% inflation adjustment and result in annual increases of over 6%. Current Year Next Year $ Increases % Increases BA 36Increase Step BA 14 BA 28 1 34,948 35,421 35,997 2 36,420 36,965 37,566 3 37,892 38,509 39,135 4 39,364 40,053 40,704 BA 36 With 2.2% Negotiated 2 37,221 37,778 38,392 3 38,726 39,356 39,996 1 2,273 2,357 2,395 2 2,306 2,391 2,430 3 2,338 2,425 2,464 1 6.50% 6.70% 6.70% 2 6.30% 6.50% 6.50% 3 6.20% 6.30% 6.30% Table 1: Salary Increases in the Typical Step and Level System Increase 1 35,717 36,200 36,789 BA 14 BA 28 Actual $ and % Increases BA 14 BA 28 BA 36 4 40,230 40,934 41,599 In order to remain competitive, we must develop a system that will allow our teacher pay to keep up with other districts with which we compete for teaching talent. However unlike other districts, our pay increases are performance based and are not experience based. School Finance Amendment 23 to the Colorado Constitution guarantees an increase in revenue for school districts at a rate of inflation plus 1%, at least until 2011. While it is fortunate to have this guarantee in the constitution compared to other programs the state must fund, this is not a growth formula and generally the increase school districts get from the state is between 2% and 4% per pupil. Additional dollars come to the district from student growth (increasing enrollment), but this does come at some cost because more students mean more expenses. Staff turnover also helps in cost control, effectively allowing the district to replace higher paid teachers with lower paid teachers but again this comes at the cost of losing better qualified instructors. Over all, this funding mechanism is not considered sufficient to maintain programs and experienced staff over the long term. The solution has been to ask voters for additional funds through override elections or have budget cuts. Typically, a district will spend reserves until fund balance reaches a trigger point and then the district will ask voters for an override. If successful, revenue and fund balance increases, then spending on program and salaries increase over a few years until expenditures exceed revenues. Fund balance decreases until the trigger point is reached and another election is held. If the override election is not passed, then the district must make budget cuts. However, the cycle of seeking overrides cannot continue indefinitely. The School Finance Act of 1994 limits overrides to 20% of total program funding. Several districts have reached this point and can no longer ask for overrides. Even though these districts have more funding than other districts they continually reduce programs to fund salaries. Eagle County Schools currently has 17% of the available 20% funding from voter overrides. The New System We have designed (and believe) the new performance pay system to be better suited to meet the school finance pressures of the future while staying market competitive for teaching talent than either the step and level system or the previous performance pay system. As has been previously presented, it contains a number of variable components that will allow the district to make annual adjustments so that we remain competitive, sustainable and performance based. This new compensation program features an annual bonus based on student performance and salary increases based on market conditions and individual performance. There is no performance bonus in traditional step and level system. The new system has an education component only for obtaining a Masters degree not increases for additional hours of college credit. Both systems have a negotiated component. This allows us to adjust with the economy and market conditions. Both systems have an annual increase. The annual increase in the proposed system is based on evaluation and individual performance. In a step and level system the step increase is guaranteed. Table 2 shows a side by side comparison of the components of the Proposed System and the step and level system. Table 2: Comparing the Proposed Performance System and the “Step and Level” System Proposed Performance System Standard Step and Level System Bonus 0 to 4% None Negotiated Increase 0 to 4% Based on Market, Inflation 0 to 4% Based on Negotiations Salary Increase 0 to 4% Based on Performance 4% Guaranteed Step Increase For the Proposed System, while there is a range in of 0% to 6% possible for salary increases, the average increase is expected to be 4.1% for this year. The Proposed System also features an annual bonus between 0% and 4% based on student achievement, but the expected average amount to be awarded is 2.5%. The traditional step and level system does not have this feature at all. Each of these average payouts can be adjusted annually in consideration of future conditions. Table 3: Comparing Proposed, Previous, and Standard School Compensation Systems Proposed Performance System Previous Performance System Standard Step and Level System Inflation or Market Adjustment Yes No Yes Education Credit Yes No Yes Experience Credit No No Yes Performance Bonus Yes Yes No Annual Increased Performance Based Yes 0% – 4% Yes 1% – 4% No 0% Market Competitive Yes No Yes Estimated Annual Increase 4% – 6% 2% – 4% 4% -6.5% We will next consider three long range scenarios. First, aligning raises with increases in additional revenue, which closely mirrors the track the district has been on for the past several years and has been increasing salaries by approximately 3.2% per year. As Figure 1 displays, while the fund balance as a percentage of expenditures begins to level out, the total value of fund balance will continue to grow each year. We will end up with millions more dollars the taxpayers gave us to educate students in our bank account. We hold that the district already has an excessive fund balance and it is not responsible to continue on a track that would add to this. Also, as the board has directed us to spend down this fund balance at a reasonable pace not to fall below 10% of revenue, this scenario does not meet those requirements. Figure 1: Adjust Salary Increases Where Revenue = or>Expenses 0 5,000,000 10,000,000 15,000,000 20,000,000 25,000,000 2003 2004 2005 2006 2007 2008 2009 2010 2011 2012 2013 2014 2015 0% 5% 10% 15% 20% 25% 30% 35% 40% 45% Fund Balance in $ FB % of Expenditures The second scenario shows the effect of trying to increase salaries by 6% – 7% annually where we are allowing raises and programming to exceed new revenue by a large and significant amount. Figure 2 below should be considered a worst case scenario but one many school districts in fact face. In 2013 Expenditures would exceed Revenue by almost $2,000,000. At that time, an override election or significant budget cuts would be necessary to stabilize fund balance. Even under this scenario fund balance would exceed the board goal for a 10% reserve until 2015. Figure 2: Adjust Salary so Expensitures Exceed Revenues, Compounding $0 $2,000,000 $4,000,000 $6,000,000 $8,000,000 $10,000,000 $12,000,000 $14,000,000 $16,000,000 $18,000,000 2003 2004 2005 2006 2007 2008 2009 2010 2011 2012 2013 2014 2015 0% 5% 10% 15% 20% 25% 30% 35% 40% 45% Fund Balance in $ FB % of Expenditures We argue for an approach which would be a healthy balance between the two scenarios demonstrated above. We believe that the Proposed Performance Pay model we have presented previously puts us on a healthy and sustainable track for the foreseeable future as it increases salaries at a 4% pace but keeps us competitive through performance based bonus opportunities. Figure 3 below demonstrates such a moderate approach that the Proposed System would yield. Figure 3: Moderate Approach, Proposed Performance Pay System – 2,000,000 4,000,000 6,000,000 8,000,000 10,000,000 12,000,000 14,000,000 16,000,000 18,000,000 20,000,000 2003 2004 2005 2006 2007 2008 2009 2010 2011 2012 2013 2014 2015 0% 5% 10% 15% 20% 25% 30% 35% 40% 45% Fund Balance in $ FB % of Expenditures The Proposed System is more adjustable than the step and level system and more competitive than the previous system. The district can control annually the in salary increase, which accounts for 85% of district expenditures. Steps are guaranteed under union contract. We would be in a better place to adjust to the economy and local conditions than traditional systems. The district, however, would not be exempt from the funding issues and restrictions that all Colorado districts face. But since we have a healthy fund balance we are in an excellent position to control and adjust as conditions change. Finally, modeling of the Proposed System shows that using this new system we can spend down the fund balance at a slow and deliberate pace and still be far above the boards directive to maintain a 10% fund balance. Closing In sum, the professional staff have evaluated the Proposed System and modeled several long term budget projections using this system. We continue to hold that this model both a significant improvement over the existing system and over a step and level system. We also hold that this system, with reasonable care taken over future budgeting, is sustainable over the long term for Eagle County Schools.

Able to test for more drugs Double positive will be the norm Suggested Protocol/Procedure for Initial Testing Program: Male/Female Designated testing with clear guidelines on authorized personnel to administer tests. Same sex monitors will wait outside a closed restroom stall for the student to produce a sample and listen for the normal sounds of urination in order to guard against tampered specimens and to insure an accurate chain of custody. (U.S. Supreme Court in Board of Education of Independent School District No. 92 of Pottawatomie County v. Earls, 536 US 822 (2002)) The test results are to be secured in confidential files separate from a students other education records and released to school personnel only on a need to know basis. Test results are not to be shared with law enforcement and are not to be used for the purpose of imposing school related disciplinary measures (separate from Athletic Handbook infractions) or lead to any academic consequences. Random testing will be done once a week. 6 male and 6 female students enrolled in extracurricular activities, excluding Band & Pro Start, will be randomly selected and tested each week from the extracurricular participant pool for the season of participation. Initiate program with a computer generated random selection process. Generate list from outside school database. i.e.: accounting firm Double blind Positive test (at school site) must be confirmed by second positive test (at lab) Testing kits will be purchased in bulk to minimize expense Student and parents must sign a drug testing authorization form for every extracurricular activity each school year to be eligible to participate. THC (Marijuana) stays in the body a minimum of 30 days, therefore, a student testing positive to a drug test, whether the student used the drug during the activity season or before starting the season, will be considered positive and be suspended from that sport. Reward program for team with a clean season will be implemented. No private/offsite testing/testing will be authorized by BMHS or the District. A student testing positive will be referred to the SAP coordinator and will be subject to consequences as outlined in the BMHS Policies and Procedures related to the Athletic Handbook. Protocol Specifications Procedures for Student Athletes Consent: Each student wishing to participate in any interscholastic athletic program and the students custodial parent or guardian shall consent in writing for every sport, every season, to drug testing pursuant to the districts drug testing program. Written consent shall be in the form attached to this policy as Exhibit A. No student shall be allowed to participate in any interscholastic athletic program without such consent. Student Selection: At the option of the district, all student athletes may be drug tested at any time during the athletic season. Selection for random testing will be by lottery drawing from a pool of all student athletes participating in interscholastic athletic programs in the school at the time of the drawing. The Principal, Athletic Director or his designee(s) shall take all reasonable steps to assure the integrity, confidentiality and random nature of the selection process, including but not necessarily limited to, assuring that the person drawing names has no way of knowingly choosing or failing to choose particular students for the testing, assuring, that the identity of students drawn for testing is not known to those involved in the selection process by at least two adults. A student may also be referred for testing by the athletic department, principal, or a recommendation of a coach if there is a reasonable suspicion to suspect a violation. Sample Collection: Samples may be collected at a mutually convenient time on the same day the student is selected for testing or, if the student is absent on that day, on the day of the students return to school. If a student is unable to produce a sample at any particular time, the student will be allowed to return later that same day to provide the sample. Prescription Meds: Students who are taking prescription medication may provide a copy of the prescription or a doctors verification in a sealed envelope to school personnel at the time a sample is collected. That envelope will be forwarded unopened to the testing lab with the sample, with instructions for the lab to consider the students use of such medication to assure the accuracy of the result. Such information provided by the student will not be disclosed to any school official. Students who refuse to provide verification and test positive will be subject to the actions specified below for positive tests. Scope of Tests: The testing lab will be instructed to test for the following drugs: amphetamines, marijuana, cocaine, opiates, and barbiturates. The Principal, Athletic Director or designee may test for additional illegal drugs, to begin with the subsequent extracurricular season; but in no event shall that determination be made after selection of students for testing. Student Athlete samples will not be screened for the presence of any substances other than an illegal drug or for the existence of any physical condition other than drug intoxication. Limited Access to Results: The testing lab will be authorized to report results only to the Principal, Athletic Director, or to such person as the Principal may designate. Procedures in the Event of a Positive Result: Whenever a Student Athletes test result indicated the presence of illegal drugs (positivetest), the following will occur: 1. The student will be asked to provide another sample as soon as possible. If the student refuses to provide another sample, or unduly delays in providing such sample, the results of the first sample shall be accepted as accurate. 2. The second sample will be submitted to the testing lab for testing; 3. If the second sample tests negative, the student will not be notified and no further action will be taken. If the second test is positive, a custodial parent or legal guardian will be notified and a meeting will be scheduled with the Principal or Athletic Director, the student, and the custodial parent or legal guardian. In addition to imposing the sanctions appropriately tied to extracurricular participation, the student will be referred to the SAP for an initial assessment which could involve additional counseling for the student (see Substance Abuse Policy for non-school related infractions). Suggestions for Next Phase/Longer Term Testing Program: Including voluntary testing for non-extracurricular students: voluntary opt in for random testing.
