Baltimore Schools to Pay Students for Gains on State Graduation Test
Students in Baltimore’s high schools will get a cash incentive to boost their scores on the state graduation exams.
The 82,000-student school system plans to spend nearly $1 million on the incentives.
Students who have failed at least one exam under Maryland’s High School Assessments will earn $25 for improving test performance by 5 percent. If they improve an additional 15 percent, they will get an additional $35. Another 20 percent improvement will earn an additional $50.
The incentives are part of a broader, $6 million plan to improve student performance on the tests.
