Henrico County Public Schools, in partnership with the Community Training and Technical Assistance Center (CTAC), was awarded a Teacher Incentive Fund grant in the amount of $16,447,775 over five years. The Learning Leaders Initiative will pilot and sustain a performance-based staff development and differentiated compensation plan. The initiative will provide teachers and principals in Henrico County’s highest-need schools with incentive pay tied directly to effective and engaging classroom instruction leading to growth in student achievement.
Learning Leaders directly addresses our nation’s greatest challenge and the Henrico School Division’s Strategic Plan focus of ensuring all children have access to a quality education by supporting the recruitment, retention and training of exceptional teachers and leaders. It is only through high quality staff that creates engaging learning environments, that high levels of student learning can be ensured.
The goals for the Learning Leaders Initiative are to:
- Build teacher and principal capacity to increase student achievement by aligning and improving implementation of teaching standards to ensure effective and engaging teaching.
- Retain a community of high-performing educators in typically hard-to-staff schools to drive academic achievement in the short and long term.
- Develop the school division’s capacity to implement and evaluate a performance-based compensation system.
