The Gains in Achievement and Innovation Now (GAINS) initiative is a partnership of the Delhi Unified School District (DUSD) and the Community Training and Assistance Center (CTAC) with a goal of improving student academic growth by increasing educator effectiveness. To achieve the goal, DUSD is implementing a performance-based teacher and principal evaluation system where educator effectiveness (measured by student academic growth and systematic observations) outweighs all other factors. Data from the evaluations guides DUSD’s human capital management decisions, including hiring, mentoring, professional development, promotion, and dismissal. Only effective or highly effective teachers qualify for leadership opportunities, advancement, and performance-based compensation.
