District Awards for Teacher Excellence: Research Brief
National Center on Performance Incentives
Since 2008 Texas's District Awards for Teacher Excellence (D.A.T.E.) program has provided grants to districts for the implementation of locally designed incentive pay plans. The 2010-11 school year is the third year of the D.A.T.E. incentive pay plans with approximately $197 million in annual state funding. This research brief summarizes the key findings from the "District Awards for Teacher Excellence (D.A.T.E.) Program: Final Evaluation Report" with a focus on the characteristics of D.A.T.E. participants, design of locally developed D.A.T.E. incentive pay plans, the D.A.T.E. awards paid out to teachers, and the outcomes for students and teachers participating in the program. (Contains 3 tables and 6 footnotes.) [For the full report, "District Awards for Teacher Excellence (D.A.T.E.) Program: Year One Evaluation Report. Policy Evaluation Report," see ED510424.]
