In the 2010-11 school year, the Harrison School District Two
in Colorado Springs began one of the most rigorous pay-for-performance plans in the nation: Called "Effectiveness and Results," this overhaul of the human capital management system was a risk worth taking because the status quo failed to adequately serve students.
Between 2007 and 2012, one-third of all teachers hired in the Harrison School District Two
in Colorado Springs were new to the profession.
With the national trend of institutional achievement being measured by the number of graduates who go on to the next level of college or career, Harrison School District Two
(HSD2) has pioneered a program to improve student success.
