Q Can a school district structure a principalís salary so that they would receive greater pay than other principals in the district if their school has a higher number of students qualified for free and reduced lunch? Also, may a district provide additional pay to teachers who agree to stay for five consecutive years at a school that has a higher number of students qualified for free and reduced lunch?
