Tennessee Accelerated Planning Districts

District Partner 2013-2014

In this six-month engagement, ERS worked with 32 Tennessee districts, known as “Accelerated Planning Districts,” through the Department of Education to support a redesign of their compensation system. A new state law requires all 136 districts to submit a differentiated pay plan (i.e., tie a performance compensation component to their structure) by February 2014.

Work Focus


  • Compensation Redesign:
    • Held four monthly workshops with district leaders and support groups to share ideas on effective compensation redesign
    • Provided advisory services to fiscal consultants on compensation redesign data analytics so that consultants can support the districts in developing fiscally sustainable and comprehensive redesign plans
    • Offered interactive tools that can be used for conceptual and contextual learning, both during and in between workshops
    • Informed the state on strategies to maximize success in district compensation redesign and implementation


  • Compensation Redesign:
    • Made all the tools and materials available to the rest of the Tennessee districts to support their reform efforts
