DCPS’ performance-based culture prompts a $64.5 million investment

Investments from four national foundations established IMPACTplus, DCPS' performance-based pay system designed to attract and retain top teachers. In 2011, Kaya Henderson was appointed Chancellor and DCPS subsequently launched A Capital Commitment, setting ambitious goals through 2017.

In addition, DC Ed Fund hosts the inaugural Standing Ovation for DC Teachers, honoring DCPS' outstanding educators at an annual awards gala held at The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.
