Approve the Agreement for Technical Services with Education Analytics, Inc., to Explore and Enhance Hiring, Developing, and Retaining Highly Effective Educators (Human Resources Division)
This Agreement for Technical Services and associated Statement of Work describes how Education Analytics, Inc., will support Hillsborough County Public Schools (HCPS) in advancing two areas of work which support the district’s goals of hiring, developing, and retaining highly effective educators: Value Added Measures and Human Capital Analytics. As HCPS enters the final three months of the Teacher Incentive Fund 4 (TIF 4) Grant No-Cost Extension, there is a unique opportunity to utilize remaining federal grant funds to ensure these two areas of work best serve the district after grant-funding ends. This work will allow for enhanced sustainability of TIF 4 initiatives and further amplify the work that has been done over the last five years of the grant’s implementation.
• Improve the high school graduation rate • Provide a student-centered learning environment that engages every child • Recruit, support, and retain a highly effective and diverse workforce • Develop, recognize, and reward employees • Develop a culture of respect, trust, and collaboration • Engage and communicate with families and stakeholders • Continuously improve processes and systems • Establish a strong foundation of financial stewardship • Demonstrate "best practices" in all aspects of safety: student, employee, visitor, facility, transportation, and health
Funds in the amount of $475,000 will be available in the TIF grant budget.  For tracking purposes, the project number specific to this agenda item is 3205.
Project deliverables will be reviewed by the Department Manager for Performance Evaluation and additional district staff.
