Seattle Public Schools awarded $12.5 million Teacher Incentive Fund Grant

U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan announced Thursday that Seattle Public Schools is among the winning applicants of the Teacher Incentive Fund (TIF) grant competition.
The five-year TIF program seeks to strengthen the education profession by rewarding excellence, attracting teachers and principals to high-need and hard to staff areas, and providing all teachers and principals with the feedback and support they need to succeed.
Seattle Public Schools will receive $12,498,772 over five years.
"The receipt of the TIF grant is a powerful endorsement of the work that our teachers, principals and staff are doing to accelerate student achievement and eliminate the achievement gap," said Maria L. Goodloe-Johnson, Ph.D., Superintendent of Seattle Public Schools.[[In-content Ad]]
