The Empowering Effective Teachers initiative is transforming the way that Hillsborough County Public Schools hires, supports, evaluates and compensates teachers. This bold initiative has put our school district in the national spotlight as a leader in school reform and as a model of collaboration.

Educators

The School Board, the Superintendent, and teachers union leadership have worked together every step of the way in designing and implementing the initiative.

The ultimate goal of this project is to increase student achievement. It helps our school district attract, support, and retain the best teachers, and we know that ensuring that we have great teachers in all our classrooms is the best way to raise student achievement.

Though the project is made possible through a major grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, this is a Hillsborough County initiative that is a collaborative effort between our school district and our teachers. We work together because we know that when students succeed, we all win.

Community

The project will have long term benefits to the entire community. It helps our school district attract and retain the best teachers, and we know that ensuring that we have great teachers in all our classrooms is the best way to raise student achievement. When we talk about educating the students of today, we’re talking about the community leaders, doctors, first responders (police, firefighters, and EMTs), teachers, and engineers of tomorrow.

Though the project is made possible through a major grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, this is a homegrown Hillsborough County initiative that relies on support and input from our community.
