Insight will use the funding to support networked improvement communities for 47 schools across four states

(Encino, CA) October 17, 2017 — Insight Education Group today announced that it has been awarded a Teacher and School Leader Incentive Program (TSL) Grant through the U.S. Department of Education. TSL funding will support Insight’s Empowering Educators to Excel (E3) program, a partnership which provides 47 schools across four states the opportunity to work together in a networked improvement community (NIC) context.

E3 will focus on the greatest school-related influencers on student achievement: the recruitment, development, and retention of teachers, teacher leaders, and principals. Educators will engage in a wide-range of wrap-around supports, including leadership academies, PLCs, and individual and peer coaching both face-to-face and virtual.

“A large percentage of school districts across the U.S. are comprised of 15 or fewer schools,” said Jason Stricker, CEO and co-founder of Insight Education Group. “Many of these school districts lack the resources and infrastructure of larger districts, but confront the same basic challenges. Through E3, these districts who share a growth mindset will be empowered to leverage the network and technology to forge partnerships across state lines which will lead to improved educational outcomes for students across the country.”

Insight Education Group will partner with and support five districts across four states: Colonial School District (New Castle, DE), Gainesville Independent School District (Gainesville, TX), Marion County School District (Marion, SC), Marlboro County School District (Marlboro, SC), and Metropolitan School District of Decatur Township (Indianapolis, IN).

Funded by the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Innovation and Improvement, the TSL grant is a new discretionary grant program that builds on the former Teacher Incentive Fund program. TSL promotes the implementation of performance-based compensation and comprehensive human capital management systems for teachers, principals, and other school leaders.
