The Delhi Unified School District (DUSD) is focused on ensuring that all students achieve academic excellence and are college- and career-ready by high school graduation.We are excited to announce that this fall DUSD won an $8.1 million, five-year Teacher Incentive Fund (TIF) grant from the U.S. Department of Education to launch the GAINS initiative, which will help us achieve those goals. We were one of only two public school districts in California to win a TIF grant this year.

Each year, educators who are rated effective or highly effective under the new evaluation system will be eligible for additional, performance-based compensation.
