McDonnell cites 51 NoVa schools for teacher merit pay

Gov. Robert F. McDonnell (BOB BROWN — AP)

School districts in Northern Virginia said they weren’t excited about the program — merit pay for teachers, based on students’ performance, remains controversial — and were baffled by the designation of some of their schools as “hard-to-staff.”

Here are the NoVa schools designated as such by the state Department of Education:

Alexandria City: Cora Kelly Magnet Elementary, Francis Hammond Middle, George Mason Elementary, James K. Polk Elementary, Mount Vernon Elementary, T.C. Williams High and William Ramsay Elementary.

Arlington County: Abingdon Elementary, Arlington Traditional Elementary, Ashlawn Elementary, Barrett Elementary, Campbell Elementary, Carlin Springs Elementary, Claremont Elementary, Drew Model Elementary, Francis Scott Key Elementary, Gunston Middle, Henry Elementary, Hoffman-Boston Elementary, Long Branch Elementary, Oakridge Elementary, Randolph Elementary, Swanson Middle and Washington-Lee High.

Fairfax County: Bailey’s Elementary, Bryant Alternative High, Franconia Elementary, Hayfield Elementary, Key Center, Kilmer Center, Little Run Elementary, North Springfield Elementary and Woodson Adult High.

Loudoun County: Creighton’s Corner Elementary, Freedom High, Rolling Ridge Elementary, Stone Hill Middle and Sugarland Elementary.

Prince William County: Antietam Elementary, Coles Elementary, Enterprise Elementary, Fannie W. Fitzgerald Elementary, Fred M. Lynn Middle, Kerrydale Elementary, Loch Lomond Elementary, Mills E. Godwin Middle, Potomac View Elementary, Rosa Parks Elementary, Victory Elementary and Woodbridge Middle.
