School plans for dispensing 'extra' money

Raquel Hendrickson

CAMP VERDE - Due nearly $57,000 from the state, Camp Verde Unified School District is determining how the money will be dispensed.

Camp Verde was one of several schools underpaid by the state in Prop. 301 funds. That 2000 proposition was approved by voters to increase teacher pay from 1-percent sales tax revenue. Earlier this school year, state officials discovered some schools were underpaid what was due to them and some were overpaid.

Camp Verde had a little of both.

Records showed CVUSD was owed $56,862.65. The district's South Verde Technology Magnet School, operating under a charter, was actually overpaid $14,465.01.

According to the Arizona Department of Education, the lump-sum shortfall to CVUSD will come in the March payment.

Prop. 301's Classroom Site Fund is divided into categories for teachers - 20 percent for base pay, 40 percent for performance pay and 40 percent for areas such as teacher development, AIMS intervention, class-size reduction and other programs.

At the beginning of the Classroom Site Fund, CVUSD incorporated it into the salary schedule. Recently, the school officials have been trying to change that approach.

"The sales tax change allows us to pull that out of the salary schedule and in doing that it spells out how we're going to dispense that money," said Administrator-in-Charge Amber Lee, PhD. "The 40 percent that was always there for pay for performance will still be there."

For now, according to the formula, more than $11,000 of the shortfall will go to the 2014 salary schedule. $22,745 goes to performance pay at the end of the year, and the other $22,745 also goes into salaries.

Lee said that half will be dispensed by the last paycheck in December.

Meanwhile, the money owed by South Verde will be subtracted over a 17-month period.
