Several MPE members have inquired in recent weeks as to if the School Recognition Program guidelines have been revised to provide for the equal distribution of award funds for all eligible staff of an eligible school, rather than a teacher committee deciding the distribution of funds.  The FY 2019-2020 School Recognition Program instructions and guidelines reflect that award funds are to be evenly distributed to all eligible staff of a school receiving the award.  Program guidelines no longer require a teacher committee to determine the distribution of funds.

May I ask what is the rationale for this? It does not appear to be encouraging teacher retention or rewarding teachers in high stakes testing areas?
