Teacher Quality Score: 62%
Neither tenure decisions nor licensure advancement and renewal are based on teacher effectiveness. Ineffective classroom performance is not grounds for dismissal in Nebraska, and performance is not considered during layoffs. In 2016, the state will provide additional funding to districts that choose to implement performance-pay systems, but only if funding is available. Districts retain the authority to set salary schedules and they are determined through collective bargaining.
