Cross County School District (Cross County) is a remote, rural local education agency (LEA) that struggles with attracting and retaining effective educators to its schools. This project focuses on two high-need schools that will use the proposed performance-based compensation system. Cross County will partner with the National Institute for Excellence in Teaching (NIET, a national nonprofit focused on educator quality) and Arkansas Tech University to enhance a human capital management system (HCMS) in Cross County schools that includes evaluation and support for educators to increase educator effectiveness and student achievement.
