Jackson County Schools could use a lottery to determine who gets four-year contracts and raises and not the point system announced last month. Teachers will be surveyed this week on whether they prefer the current plan or a lottery. There are 182 teachers in Jackson County eligible for contract offers. That means they have three years or more experience and proficient ratings or higher on job evaluations. Twenty-five percent, will get four-year contract offers and the promise of a $500 a year raises. Teachers relinquish tenure, if they have it, in lieu of contracts. Haywood and Buncombe Counties are among 27 of the 115 school systems in the state that have passed resolutions condemning the contracts. A list of selected teachers must be provided to the school board by May 31. By law, the names of those approved for contracts and raises are public record.
