Glendale charter school reverses itself and will award merit bonuses earned by teachers
The board for Heritage Elementary, a Glendale charter school, reversed itself at a brief special meeting Tuesday and voted to award merit pay bonuses to teachers who earned them during the past school year but were not returning.
“It really shows that they knew what they were doing was not right,” said Sarah Jennings, one of the 20 teachers who demanded the bonuses. “We are the first group of people to stand up to them … All it takes is a group of people being organized and stepping out a little bit and make change.”
