School District of Lee County Logo

Lee County’s TIF project aims to increase the number of highly effective teachers in high-need schools, especially in high-need subjects. To accomplish this, Lee County designed a system to offer financial incentives for high- performing educators in high-need subjects and schools, as well as career ladder opportunities that aim to attract and retain high-performing educators. Lee County also aligns professional development recommendations to educator evaluation results. Lee County’s TIF project includes 32 participating high-need schools. Of the participating schools, 21 are elementary schools, 5 are middle schools, and 7 are high schools. At least 80 percent of the student population receives free or reduced-price lunch in 27 of the participating schools, and 15 of the schools have a free or reduced-price lunch rate exceeding 90 percent.
