AGO Opinions with Topic: INCENTIVE PAYMENTS
AGO 1989 No. 15 >  July 21, 1989
COMPENSATION - INCENTIVE PAYMENTS - TEACHERS - SCHOOL DISTRICTS
COMPENSATION ‑- SCHOOL DISTRICTS ‑- TEACHERS ‑- INCENTIVE PAYMENTS  1.In order to be lawful, "incentive payments" made to certificated school district personnel under the authority of RCW 28A.58.0951(4) must be related to some identifiable, measurable "incentive" defined in a district policy or contract and amounting to more than the performance of duties and functions defined by statute as "basic education". 2.A school district must retain documentation of eligibility for payments made under RCW 28A.58.0951(4), but the exact form of the documentation depends on the nature of the payments and the policy choices of the State Auditor under RCW 43.09.200.
