SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Utah State school officials are hoping to come up with a plan to attract and keep teachers in the state.

The state Office of Education is assembling a task force to study and recommend options, such as compensating teachers based of their students' achievements and their willingness to teach in tough schools.

Last year, a study showed Utah needs an additional 1-thousand-175 teachers during the next two decades to keep up with enrollment.

Right now, Utah teachers are given a base salary their first year, then it's increased each year they teach.
