    Abstract: To assist schools in attracting, retaining and motivating 
effective teachers and principals, in 2006 the U.S. Department of 
Education launched the Teacher Incentive Fund, which supports 
comprehensive compensation reform activities including bonus pay-for-
performance (PFP), career advancement and professional development. The 
purpose of this evaluation is to describe the implementation of the 
program and its relationship to any increases in recruitment and 
retention of effective teachers and principals. If feasible, this 
evaluation will also seek to analyze TIF's relationship to increasing 
student achievement.
