The Teacher Incentive Fund (TIF) program, established in 2006, is designed to support Local Education Agencies, State Education Agencies, and Charter Schools in the development, and implementation of sustainable Performance-based Compensation Systems for teachers, principals and other personnel in High-Needs Schools. As of 2016, the Department of Education has awarded grants to five cohorts of TIF grantees.  The guidelines for each successive cohort have built on the lessons learned from the prior cohorts.  The evolution of the TIF Program is illustrated in this infographic, highlighting the lessons learned throughout the life of the program.
