National Education Finance Conference

Negotiating and Financing a Performance Based Pay Model for Public School Employee Bargaining Groups: The Baltimore City Experience.

Speaker: PK Law attorney Edmund J. O’Meally
May 2-4, 2012
San Antonio, Texas

Mr. O’Meally will lead a lively discussion on negotiating an overhaul of employee compensation scales by eliminating seniority based steps and replacing them with a performance based model for both professional and classified employee bargaining groups. This presentation is relevant to any school system or educational leader that is interested in enhancing student achievement and school improvement by rewarding teachers and other school employees for achievement, proficiency, leadership, and effort rather than maintaining the outdated industrial model that rewards seniority and mediocrity at the expense of students.
