TIF School- One of Mississippi's Terrific Schools!

What does it mean to be a TIF school?

In 2010, the Mississippi Department of Education received one of the highly competitive five-year federal grants to improve student learning. The TIF grant, also known as the Terrific Schools Initiative, is designed to motivate the academic performance of students through strong leadership of teachers and administrators.  The program measures an educator’s performance by student outcomes. The growth component of the state accountability model was used to determine whether the schools met student academic growth.  Of the 10 schools participating in the grant program, North Jones Elementary was one of the 7 schools that met growth!   GREAT JOB, NJE!
