In July, 2010 the Redmond School District, as part of a consortium of several other school districts from Central Oregon and across the state, was awarded a federal Teacher Incentive Fund (TIF) grant. The grant gives 13.2 million dollars to the consortium to be spent on planning and implementing reforms associated with the CLASS Project over a five year period. Below is a brief description from the U.S. Department of Education about the purpose and goals of the Teacher Incentive Fund as well as a link to some FAQ's about how TIF relates to the CLASS Project.
This program supports efforts to develop and implement performance-based teacher and principal compensation systems in high-need schools.
