Maine Department of Education

Cohort:
TIF 4

The Maine Schools for Excellence (MSFE) TIF 4 initiative is designing and implementing a comprehensive human capital management system (HCMS) to attract, support, and retain great teachers and leaders; increase student learning; and narrow the achievement gap. The work is concentrated in 21 high-need schools spread over four local education agencies (LEAs). Based in part on its experience and success in TIF 3, Maine has developed an educator evaluation and professional growth program that includes student growth as a significant measure, as well as an integrated performance-based compensation program that rewards educators for performance on a balanced set of locally defined and strategically aligned measures and targets. Maine’s 21 participating high-need schools represent approximately 95 percent of the total students across the four participating LEAs. One of participating LEAs is rural; two are in towns; and one is in a city. Maine has a surging population of foreign-born English learners and the highest poverty rate in New England.
