Youth Empowerment Services, Inc. (YES) is the nonprofit, 501(c)(3) partner and the fiscal agent for this TIF project. Four local education agencies (LEAs), representing 100 percent of the organization's 13 campuses are partnering with YES to implement the Educator Effectiveness Process (EEP).  All of the 13 schools qualify as high-need campuses.

 

The Educator Effectiveness Process (EEP) has been an extremely successful addition to each campus' comprehensive school improvement processes during the past 6 years. As educator effectiveness has increased, so has the academic performance of the students. This project will add a human capital management system (HCMS) process to the evaluation system along with the currently existing performance-based compensation system (PBCS).
