Broward County Public Schools (BCPS), a single local education agency (LEA), is the 6th largest fully accredited K-12 school district in the nation, serving 268,836 students and employing 14,088 educators in 339 schools. BCPS will target 32 schools for TIF 5, and will scale many grant activities districtwide with in-kind funds. BCPS provides proof that large, urban districts can use an aligned human capital management system (HCMS) as a lever for equitable distribution of educators to increase proficiency and close achievement gaps in high-need schools. The Leading Excellence and Achievement in Performance (LEAP) Ahead project includes refinement of well-established, districtwide educator evaluation systems; increased alignment of human capital decisions with evaluations; supplements to a districtwide, performance-based compensation system (PBCS); transfer bonuses; attendance bonuses; personalized, job-embedded professional development; and collaboration with partners on social-emotional learning, early literacy, and teacher residency initiatives.
