The Broward County Public School’s (BCPS) Leading Excellence and Achievement in Performance (LEAP) project aims to effectively enhance student achievement in high-need schools by improving the effectiveness of the teachers and leaders who serve them in 25 high- need schools. Project activities include alignment of human capital decisions with evaluations; development and implementation of salary supplements for Effective or Highly Effective teachers of high-need subjects who transfer to Teacher Incentive Fund (TIF) schools; individualized professional development budgets for teachers in high-need schools as an incentive for teaching in those schools; and development and implementation of teacher leadership and principal leadership career continua, including training programs to develop teacher and principal mentors, coaches, and peer reviewers. Broward is ahead of schedule and in Year 3 of the grant period has achieved district-wide implementation of teacher and administrator evaluations, with a student- growth value-added measure as a significant component, as well as district-wide implementation of a performance salary schedule based on effectiveness and position on a career continuum.
