About Us

The Center for Educator Compensation Reform (CECR) is the premier organization that works to raise national awareness of alternative and effective strategies for educator compensation reform. This website serves as the primary online repository for information, tools, and resources to support Teacher Incentive Fund (TIF) grantees, policymakers, state officials, and district professionals with the design and implementation of educator compensation reform policies.

CECR was awarded to Westat—in partnership with Learning Point Associates, an affiliate of American Institutes for Research, Synergy Enterprises, Vanderbilt University, and the University of Wisconsin–Madison—by the U.S. Department of Education in October 2006 under contract number ED-06-CO-0110.

The CECR website content does not necessarily reflect the position or policy of CECR or the U.S. Department of Education nor does mention or visual representation of trade names, commercial products, or organizations imply endorsement by CECR or the federal government.
