Grant Profile

Life School of Dallas

Cohort:
TIF 4

The Life School Teacher Incentive Initiative is implementing a teacher and principal performance-based compensation system (PBCS) that uses student achievement as a primary indicator of effective teacher and principal performance. In the first four years, the compensation system provided for bonus awards to educators meeting the effectiveness criteria in the evaluation system. In Year 5, the compensation system may provide for base salary increases. The PBCS also offers stipends to those teachers taking on leadership roles that offer job-embedded professional development. Life School serves over 5,000 students at eight locations across the Dallas region. Each location has a large population of students who receive free or reduced-price lunch. The highest-need campuses have struggled to make Adequate Yearly Progress.
