Differentiated Pay

Tenn. Code Ann. §49-3-306(h) requires districts to create and implement differentiated pay plans.  In May 2017, the State Board of Education passed the new Strategic Compensation Policy 5.600 that provides greater clarity on the qualifications for differentiated pay plans. 

Differentiated Pay Process for 2020-21

The submission process for the 2020-21 differentiated pay process is now available. Districts should submit their plans electronically using the 2020-21 Differentiated Pay Plan submission form. Submission includes:

  • 2020-21 Differentiated Pay Plan
  • Implementation update on 2019-20 Differentiated Pay Plan (based on payouts to teachers during the 2019-20 school year)
  • 2020-21 Salary Schedule (upload in excel format)
