Program Purpose

The TSL program supports entities in implementing, improving, or expanding their overall Human Capital Management System (HCMS), which by definition must include a Performance-Based Compensation System (PBCS).  The TSL programs primarily serves educators in High-Need Schools who raise student academic achievement and close the achievement gap between high- and low-performing students, although the program may also fund services for educators serving in high-need subject areas (though not necessarily in High-Need Schools), as determined by the LEA or the State.
