Dallas school board members have approved a plan that will tie all teachers' pay raises to their classroom-evaluation results.

Teachers will be judged on a combination of observations, test scores, and student surveys. After their initial placement, they have the opportunity to move up to higher performance bands, each of which includes a pay boost. To reach the highest levels, they'll have to satisfy a district-level teaching review in addition to getting a satisfactory evaluation from their principal.

The plan, passed by the board last month, will be fleshed out in 2014-15, with teachers given their placements at the end of that year.
