San Antonio Independent School District (SAISD), a local educational agency (LEA), aims to improve student performance in the district's lowest-performing schools by identifying, developing, rewarding, and elevating the role of high-quality teachers and principals in these schools and by creating model classrooms that support excellent teaching and learning experiences for the district's neediest students.

The project focuses on redesigning the district's human capital management system (HCMS). Goals for the grantee include (a) increasing placement and retention of high-quality teachers and principals in SAISD's lowest-performing schools, (b) improving teacher and principal effectiveness ratings, and (c) improving student outcomes in the district's lowest-performing schools. SAISD will conduct the project in partnership with teachers, principals, the San Antonio Alliance of Teachers and Support Personnel, Texas A&M University at San Antonio (TAMU-SA), Relay Graduate School of Education, and a nonprofit educational consulting agency.
