Faq s frequently asked questions
FAQ'sFrequently Asked Questions

1. When will the new program begin?

Year 1 is designated as a planning year, therefore no incentives can be distributed; however, the professional learning activities have begun. We will begin full implementation of LCPS “TIF” program to include incentives for the 2012 fiscal year in April 2011 with the voluntary 10 day open enrollment period.

2. Are teachers and principals the only ones who will get an incentive?

No, although this is a teacher incentive program, The LCPS system requested an amendment to the grant to include classified employees.

3. Will instructional staff of non-tested subjects be eligible to receive the incentive?

Yes, however the amount for the classroom level award will be determined by the average NCE score on the SAT 10 for all students tested on the campus they are assigned.

4. How many opportunities exist to receive an incentive?

Classified employees who meet the criteria established are eligible for 1 opportunity to receive an incentive. Certified employees have two opportunities to receive an incentive: classroom level award and school-wide award.

5. How will pay be distributed?

The disbursement schedule will be during the LCPS beginning of year Institute day.

FAQ'sFrequently Asked Questions

6. Will there exist leadership opportunities for teachers?

Yes, there is a component of the grant that addresses teachers taking on additional duties as mentor/model teachers.

7. How long is the grant?

The grant period is for five years, but year one has been established as a planning year. Since the first year is a planning year we are unable to pay any incentives during that time. The actual incentives will begin in year two and extend through year five. At this time we have only been awarded money to cover our budget for years one, two and part of year three. Based on our progress toward our objectives and proof we are following our program as it was presented in the grant, we will be awarded the remainder of year three. The last two years will be determined by congressional action. We will, however, be working to secure funding to not only support and expand the program during the life of the grant, but also to continue the program once the grant period is over.

8. Can this grant be renewed?

We can reapply for this grant, but preference is given to first time applicants. The TIF organization stresses that grant recipients should be able to secure funding to continue their programs once the grant period ends.

9. If teachers assigned to your school choose to opt-out of participation in the LCPS TIF program will it impact the opportunity for my school receiving the School-wide award?

No. Those individuals who choose to opt-out just will not be computed in the divisor when the award is divided equally amongst all instructional staff at your site
