LISD Incentive For Teachers (LIFT)

2023-24 LIFT DATA 

Longview ISD was ahead of the curve back in 2011, when trustees voted to implement a performance pay system for middle school reading and math teachers.

Designed to help close the achievement gap between low socio-economic and middle-income students, today the LIFT Pay for Performance Program includes different award models and has proven instrumental in retaining high-quality educators.

Incentive pay for Longview ISD teachers has increased dramatically since the $350,000 awarded in the first year of the program back in 2015.
