Grant Profile

Maricopa County Superintendent of Schools

Cohort:
TIF 4

Seven local education agencies (LEAs) and 45 high-need schools in and around Phoenix, Arizona, collaborated to form the Rewarding Excellence in Instruction and Leadership—The Next Generation (REIL-TNG) initiative. During the TIF 4 grant, each LEA will create a performance-based salary structure that rewards educators based on their evaluation results. The program will also provide additional compensation for teachers who undertake leadership roles or move to high-need schools. Maricopa County’s partner LEAs represent a diverse group of rural, urban, and special populations. They range from Mobile Elementary School District, with 27 students, to Roosevelt School District, with 9,632 students. Another LEA, the Arizona Department of Juvenile Corrections, is responsible for the provision of educational services for juveniles adjudicated delinquent and committed by the juvenile courts.
