South Dakota Incentives Plus is a financial incentive system that targets teachers and principals in high-need schools in mainly rural areas. The system includes professional development and financial incentives to principals and instructional staff based on classroom and school-wide gains in student achievement. South Dakota INCENTIVESplus is funded by a five-year $20 million grant from the U.S. Department of Education. Forty Title I elementary and secondary schools in 10 South Dakota school districts participate in the INCENTIVESplus project.
