Project RISE - Rewards and Incentives for School Educators is an innovative five year initiative funded through a grant from the United States Department of Education's Teacher Incentive Fund. Project RISE is designed to increase teacher and administrator effectiveness in high-need schools through a combination of incentives and support. In the final year of implementation, thirty-six (36) high-need Miami-Dade County Public Schools are participating in this pilot program. This comprehensive approach has resulted in increases in teacher and administrator effectiveness and improvement in student achievement so that increasing numbers of teachers and administrators in Project RISE schools qualify for local and state performance-based compensation.
