The Belt System explained

To acknowledge professionalism and excellence, Gaba has eight "Belt" levels. It is a matter of merit, not tenure, to advance beyond the entry level wage. Each level has minimum performance requirements that must be met in order for the teacher to "Belt Up." Client evaluations of lesson quality and voluntary participation in Developmental Workshops are among the criteria.
