Q-Comp was enacted through a bipartisan agreement in the Minnesota Legislature in July 2005. It is a voluntary program that allows local districts and exclusive representatives of the teachers to design and collectively bargain a plan that meets the five components of the law:
- Career Ladder/Advancement Options
- Job-embedded Professional Development
- Teacher Evaluation
- Performance Pay
- Alternative Salary Schedule
Bloomington will receive $260 per student for the program ($169 per student in state aid and $91 per student in levy approved by the Board on December 12, 2011).
