Well, that’s one way to take care of staffing at the Priority Schools…

The following email went out to selected staff at SCUSD on Friday April 9, 2010:

Congratulations! On behalf of SCUSD, we are pleased to inform you that you are one of a select few outstanding teachers eligible for an exciting new district program – the Talent Transfer Initiative (TTI).
The Talent Transfer Initiative is a highly selective, federally funded initiative that recognizes current SCUSD teachers who have a track record of contributing to student achievement gains by offering them the opportunity to take on a new challenge by using their skills in high-needs schools – where they are needed most and can have the most profound impact. If you choose to transfer to a participating SCUSD school, you will be eligible to receive $20,000 over a two-year period in recognition of the adjustment that comes with taking on a new position, as well as for the potential tremendous impact you can take at your new school. This research study is funded by the U.S. Department of Education; participation requires no expenditure whatsoever of district funds.
For more information about the Talent Transfer Initiative, including an overview of the program, benefits, and frequently asked question, visit http://www.talenttransferintiative.org. To access available information about SCUSD, use this password information:

Coral A. Jenrette, Program Manager for the Talent Transfer Initiative, will contact you directly to invite you to the reception being held in your honor on April 19. She will also send you the unique username and password you will need to complete the online application (deadline is April 27). Please feel free to reach out to her with any questions at coral@talenttransferinitiative.org or (800) 688-6983 ext 3.
SCUSD is looking forward to working with you to help our students succeed.
Sincerely,

Mary Shelton
Acting Chief Academic Officer
Sacramento City Unified School District
