    School-Based Administrator Compensation Plan (SBACP)

    The new streamlined School-Based Administrator Compensation Plan (SBACP) is effective for the 2013-14 school year. The SBACP is a transparent compensation-setting plan that can be leveraged for staffing decisions and replaces the former Ewing Study. The District will maintain current salary schedule levels for school-based administrators for which the SBACP has set a lower schedule, as long as the administrators remain at the same school in the same position.

    The current salary schedule levels are available under Quick Links - SBACP Documents

    The School-Based Administrator Compensation Plan (SBACP) is based on:

    • School type (e.g., Elementary, Secondary, SPAN)
    • Classification/position (e.g., Principal, Assistant Principal)
    • 3-year average student enrollment (e.g., 2010-11, 2011-12, and 2012-13, which includes magnet, special education, and pre-K SRLDP students)

    The SBACP will strategically assist the District’s recruitment and retention goals by:

    • Setting salary schedule levels to help remain competitive with surrounding school districts
    • Providing transparent and objective compensation criteria
    • Providing Educational Service Center leaders an opportunity to plan and staff key school leadership roles prospectively
    • Providing a foundation for discussion of potential strategies to recruit, retain, and reward accomplished and successful school-based administrators
