Funding Opportunity Description Purpose of Program: The purpose of TSL is to assist States, local educational agencies (LEAs), and nonprofit organizations to develop, implement, improve, or expand comprehensive performance-based compensation systems or human capital management systems for teachers, principals, and other school leaders (especially for teachers, principals, and other school leaders in high-need schools) who raise student academic achievement and close the achievement gap between high- and low-performing students. In addition, a portion of TSL funds are dedicated to study the effectiveness, fairness, quality, consistency, and reliability of performance-based compensation systems or human capital management systems for teachers, principals, and other school leaders. Background: The Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA), as reauthorized on December 10, 2015, by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA),1 established the Teacher and School Leader Incentive Fund (TSL) program. TSL builds on the former Teacher Incentive Fund (TIF) program and promotes Performance-Based Compensation Systems (PBCSs) 2 and comprehensive Human Capital Management Systems (HCMSs) that support teachers, principals, and other school leaders (i.e., Educators as used in this notice). In recognition of the importance that effective school leadership has on student achievement, TSL also promotes comprehensive Evaluation and Support Systems for all Educators within an LEA, especially those serving in high-need schools. In addition, TSL seeks to contribute to the body of knowledge regarding impactful approaches to enhancing Educator effectiveness by promoting the study of the efficacy, fairness, quality, consistency, and reliability of these systems to support Educators through an independent, Department-led evaluation to assess the program’s effectiveness and relevant lessons learned. Further, the Department seeks to ensure that the design of the TSL competition reflects the new provisions 1 Unless otherwise noted, references in this notice to sections of the ESEA as reauthorized by ESSA are identified as sections of the ESEA. 2 Throughout this notice, all defined terms are denoted with capitals. PO 00000 Frm 00024 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 92793 of the TSL statute in ESEA sections 2211–2213, as well as the lessons learned from 10 years of implementing the TIF program. Results from the TIF program have varied across and within the portfolio of five cohorts of TIF grantees, comprised of over 140 grantees that received a total of about $2 billion in grant awards. Successful TIF grantees implemented comprehensive efforts to help teachers and principals learn and grow throughout their professional trajectories. Successful TIF grantees also considered recruitment, induction, support and career development, and growth and leadership opportunities aligned with the LEA’s overall improvement strategy; and they used multi-measure evaluation systems to inform the development of innovative incentives and structures that support teachers’ and principals’ growth and advancement. LEAs also used TIF funds to develop their cadre of leaders. With the priorities, requirements, definitions, and selection criterion used for this competition, we seek to build on the efforts of the TIF program and abundant research over two decades showing that teachers and teacher effectiveness are the most critical inschool factors in improving student outcomes.3 In addition, we have learned that effective principals and other School Leaders are crucial to strengthening teaching and school communities, and play a critical role in students’ academic success—especially in high-need schools—by creating cultures of high expectations.4 Indeed, teachers cite a principal’s support and effectiveness as a leading factor that contributes to their decision to remain in the profession.5 Effective School Leaders directly impact the quality of instruction through hiring decisions of school personnel that provide instructional leadership, support, and develop teachers—which, in turn, can help teachers focus their 3 Aaronson, Daniel, Barrow, Lisa, & Sander, William, ‘‘Teachers and Student Achievement in the Chicago Public High Schools.’’ (2007), Journal of Labor Economics, 25(1), 95–135; Rivkin, Steven, Hanushek, Eric & Kain, John, ‘‘Teachers, Schools, and Academic Achievement.’’ (2005), Econometrica, 73(2), 417–458. 4 ‘‘Impact Evaluation of Support for Principals,’’ http://ies.ed.gov/ncee/projects/evaluation/tq_ principals.asp (2014); Leithwood, Kenneth, et al., ‘‘How Leadership Influences Student Learning: Review of Research’’ (2004) New York: The Wallace Foundation, available at http:// www.wallacefoundation.org/knowledge-center/ Documents/How-Leadership-Influences-StudentLearning.pdf. 5 Ingersoll, Richard. ‘‘Teacher Turnover, Teacher Shortages, and the Organization of Schools.’’ University of Washington.
