Question – When teachers get paid for their students’ performance, what will be the criteria used to pay counselors for their students’ performance?
Response – You appear to referring to the state’s plan to tie teacher evaluation – and ultimately compensation – to student achievement. The state plan hasn’t been completely formulated yet, but teachers will be accountable for state-mandated test scores, and teachers who do not teach those assessed subjects will be in some way accountable through shared attribution of those test scores or accountable to other sorts of assessment. It is the intent of the USOE to create a system of accountability for all educators that is rooted in academic achievement of students; it is likely that counselors will be included in that system in some way as it is developed.
