Transforming the Teaching Profession: NSBA Helps Build Shared Vision
May 23, 2012 - Building on collective efforts and attendance at the U.S. Department of Education’s 2012 Labor Management Conference, NSBA joined Secretary Duncan and six other national education leaders in continuing the conference’s theme of transforming the teaching profession by releasing a shared vision document that paved the way toward achieving that. Titled, Transforming the Teaching Profession, the document outlines steps that states, school districts, and the federal government must take to recruit, prepare, and support teachers through their careers.

Guiding Principles for Teacher Incentive Compensation Plans
The principles outlined in this document have been developed jointly by the American Association of School Administrators (AASA), the American Federation of Teachers (AFT), the National Education Association (NEA) and the National School Boards Association (NSBA). The principles were designed to offer guidance to our local leaders and members if they choose to participate in the U.S. Department of Education Teacher Incentive Fund (TIF) grant program, which requires incentive compensation plans. Just as these principles have been developed jointly, we strongly believe that TIF incentive compensation plans—in order to be successful and sustainable as part of a school improvement system—must be developed collaboratively with the relevant stakeholders.
