WAUKESHA, WI (WTAQ) - The Waukesha Public School District could vote next month to hire a consultant to help it determine changes in its salary structure to reward better teachers.

District teachers would be paid based on the quality of their performance, rather than their seniority and education levels.

If the Board of Education approves the $77,000 contract in December, the consultant could come back with ideas for the transition within six months.

Making those changes was made possible by legislation passed last session at the Capitol in Madison limiting collective bargaining and opening the door for rethinking how teachers are paid.

Parts of the law were struck down and are headed for an appeals court.
