Pitt County Schools (PCS) is a single local education agency (LEA) serving 23,500 students in 37 schools of varying grade ranges located throughout Pitt County. In 2014-15, these students included 70 percent nonwhite minorities. Approximately 59 percent of students qualified for free or reduced-price school meals. The district includes 30 high-need schools; the TIF project will serve 28 of them. Eight of the 28 schools were low-performing in 2014-15, based on an A-F rating scale implemented by the state, and none of the remaining high-need schools received ratings above a C. In 4 of the last 5 years, PCS' teacher turnover rates exceeded the state average. This turnover affects not only student instruction and achievement, but also leadership development and growth among peer teachers, disproportionately affecting high-need schools. To address these challenges to the extent possible with available resources, PCS deployed the R3 Human Capital Management System (HCMS) in 2013. This TIF project will enable PCS to fully implement the career pathways and performance-based compensation elements of the R3 Framework in 28 high-need schools.
