Bonus

The Charlotte Mecklenburg School board approved a plan Tuesday night to judge which teachers will be offered bonuses that total $5,000 over four years. CMS teachers will be awarded points for good evaluations, working in a hard-to-fill subject like math, and having an advanced degree and board certification. Growth of student test scores will not be a factor. 

Erika Ellis-Stewart voted for the plan, but said she did so grudgingly.
