Moving Teachers: Implementation of Transfer Incentives in Seven Districts - This report describes the implementation and intermediate impacts of an intervention designed to provide incentives to induce a school districtís highest-performing teachers to work in its lowest-achieving schools to improve student achievement. The intervention, Talent Transfer Initiative (TTI), offers $20,000 to highest-performers within certain categories of teachers if they agree to transfer and remain for at least two years in one of the selected low-achieving schools in the district.

The impacts of the transfer incentive program on student and teacher outcomes will be examined in a subsequent report.
