Logo Region 18 Education SVC Center

The Texas Teacher Incentive Fund (TIF) project (the Texas TIF project) is a partnership between the fiscal agent, Education Service Center 18 (ESC 18), the Texas Association of School Boards (TASB), and four public school districts across Texas. The Texas TIF project aims to create effective human capital management systems (HCMS) that incorporate innovative educator evaluation systems that include value-added modeling, student learning objectives (SLOs), performance-based compensation systems (PBCS), targeted professional development, and recruitment incentives. The project includes four Texas public school districts (Anderson-Shiro CISD, Coldspring-Oakhurst CISD, Lytle ISD, and Pharr-San Juan-Alamo ISD) that serve 33 schools, over 1,700 professional staff, and over 24,200 students. The participating districts and schools have low student achievement scores compared to the state average, serve a high percentage of economically disadvantaged students (approximately 75 percent free or reduced-price lunch), and face high teacher and principal turnover.
