MAYNARD'S FORMER TEACHER GETS SURPRISE VISIT, CHECK FOR APEX
As part of “Thank a Teacher” week, Dr. Jim McIntyre, Superintendent of the Knox County Schools surprised Teri Rudolph,
2nd grade elementary school teacher at Maynard Elementary School,
with a $2,000 APEX (Advance • Perform • EXcel) award check.
Elementary and middle school teachers in the Knox County Schools began receiving award notification on Wednesday as part of the APEX strategic compensation initiative, which recognizes and rewards the inputs and outcomes that support greater student academic achievement and growth. It is expected that 58 percent of Knox County School teachers will have earned financial incentives ranging from $1,500 to $2,000. High school teachers and building administrators will be notified in early November of their APEX awards.
Through the Race to the Top competition and Innovation Acceleration Fund, the Knox County Schools secured more than $10 million in federal competitive-grant funding to use in the design and implementation of a district-wide strategic compensation plan. The grant funding for APEX is available over the next three to five years, with a goal of incorporating APEX in our general operating budget if proven successful.
Maynard's Principal, Dr. Raphel Crawford is shown along with the honoree, Teri Rudolph
as Dr. James McIntrye presents the check to her class on September 26th, 2012.
Please return all completed school forms to your child's teacher by August 16th.
Dr. Raphael Crawford
