Region One Education Service Center (Region One), located along the Texas-Mexico border, is partnering with 16 high-need, economically depressed, urban and rural school districts with a low-income rate of 88 percent. The 16 districts comprise 15 regular schools, six charter schools and 10 rural schools, for a total of 31 schools. Of those, 21 are priority schools. The target school districts show an average 2- to 3-year tenure among teachers and principals. It is difficult to recruit effective teachers to these remote, isolated, economically distressed, south Texas school districts. This  project aims to establish an effective human capital management system (HCMS) and performance-based compensation system (PBCS) at each school district to foster development of educators who are eager to advance and to recruit and retain high-quality educators eager to learn and teach.
