The Teacher Incentive Fund was first introduced in 2006 by then-Secretary of Education Margaret Spellings to encourage the education community and others to look at teacher and principal compensation in a different way. Round 1 awarded $99 million in 2007, and Round 2 awarded $97 million in 2008, which together provided funding for 33 projects across 109 districts in 18 states. In 2010, TIF Round 3 awarded $400 million to approximately 54 organizations across nine states. For more information about TIF 4 priorities and awards, visit USDOE's website.

Over the past three years, I've had the pleasure of working with more than 60 districts and three state agencies as a strategic compensation advisor, educator, or design-facilitator. TIF provides innovative districts the opportunity to collaborate with teachers, principals, and the community to think outside the box when it comes to human capital issues. When teachers and principals are involved in a collaborative design process, districts are able to imagine, develop, and implement creative systems that recruit, reward, and retain highly effective staff.

Congratulation to the districts, states, and other education organizations who received TIF funds today. I will watch for opportunities to share their progress with readers over the next year!
