Compensation & Benefits

Compensation and benefits are often seen as a technical piece of HR work. When approached in a creative and strategic way, we can see that they can help to improve teacher and leader performance. This section provides an overview of USHCA’s stance on compensation and benefits.

When we think about differentiated pay and benefits, we need to go beyond traditional salary schedules and lanes. We need to consider the relationship of compensation to teacher and leader performance.
