The National Institute for Excellence in Teaching (NIET) is partnering with Athens City Schools’ (ACS) five schools, Manchester City Schools’ (MCS) three schools, Etowah City School, as well as two individual schools in two rural local education agencies (LEAs), Coalfield School in Morgan County and Dodson Branch in Jackson County, Tennessee, to increase teacher and leader effectiveness and student academic growth. The core of the districts’ reform strategy is the adoption of TAP: The System for Teacher and Student Advancement, which includes career advancement for effective teachers with salary augmentation for taking on additional roles and responsibilities, ongoing professional development, rigorous and fair evaluation systems, and performance-based compensation for effective educators.
