Opportunity Culture (OC)
An Opportunity Culture extends the reach of excellent teachers and their teams to more students, for more pay, within recurring budgets.
Schools in the REIL-Extend program will each create their own Opportunity Culture, with teachers leading the way to choose what roles and designs fit their school best. More students will receive excellent instruction, closing gaps and helping them leap ahead. New teaching roles will let teachers lead without leaving the classroom, and give and receive the support, coaching, and collaboration all teachers need to succeed and advance. Along with new opportunities for school leaders, these roles will increase teacher retention and the schools’ ability to attract excellent educators to the high-needs schools.
