Teacher Incentive Fund

The Teacher Incentive Fund (TIF), established in 2006, supports performance-based teacher and principal compensation systems in high-need schools, primarily through grants to school districts and consortia of school districts. TIF supports a variety of performance-based teacher and principal compensation systems that reward teachers and principals for increases in student achievement and boost the number of effective instructors teaching in hard-to-staff subjects and in high need schools. To qualify for a TIF grant, applicants must agree to establish a compensation system that provides teachers and principals in high-need schools with differentiated levels of compensation based on student achievement gains, as well as on classroom evaluations.
