State awarded grant for experimental program
The Mississippi Department of Education (MDE) has been selected to take part in a five-year effort to improve education in so-called “high-need” schools by developing a performance-based compensation system, according to U.S. Senator Thad Cochran.
MDE was selected through the U.S. Department of Education’s Teacher Incentive Fund (TIF) grant competition to receive more than $10.9 million for a five-year initiative to develop and implement a program that links performance-based compensation with a comprehensive effort to increase student achievement among low-income and minority students.
