CCSD Launches NEW Teacher Career Pathway

  • opportunity culture principlesThe Clarke County School District is excited to launch Opportunity Culture, a new teacher career pathway, to positively impact our students and community. LEARN MORE! Sign up for an informational webinar.

    To provide all students with excellent teaching and to help students close achievement gaps and leap ahead, our schools are using Opportunity Culture models for their teachers and students. Opportunity Culture models enable schools to reach every student with excellent teachers and their teams —consistently — while paying teachers more for their extra responsibilities and helping all educators improve on the job and work collaboratively. All pay supplements are funded through reallocations of existing budgets – no temporary grants.

    Opportunity Culture models create new roles for teachers — through a foundation of the Multi-Classroom Leader role — and support staff, and they carefully integrate technology to save teachers time and help individualize instruction, often through small groups. The most effective teachers are responsible not only for helping more students, but also for helping their peers achieve teaching excellence. Research has shown large student learning gains for students on Multi-Classroom Leader teams.

    In each Opportunity Culture school, a team of teachers and administrators adopts new roles to reach more students with teachers who have produced high-growth student learning. The team decides what reallocations to make to fund higher-paid roles, how to design school schedules for collaboration at school, how fast to reach all students with excellent teaching, and other design elements. Four schools will pilot the new career pathway in the 2024-2025 school year: Clarke Central High School, Burney-Harris-Lyons Middle School, Timothy Road Elementary, and Winterville Elementary.
