Why is CCS implementing Opportunity Culture?
We believe that the teacher in the classroom has the most impact on a student’s performance, so we implemented Opportunity Culture as a way to recruit, develop, retain, and reward excellent teachers. Teachers consistently say that they long to make more of an impact, have leadership opportunities that do not take them out of the classroom, and be paid commensurate with their level of responsibility and impact on students. Opportunity Culture addresses all of this. We also focus on supporting and developing our teachers, and an Opportunity Culture makes consistent, personalized, on-the-job, weekly or even daily support possible.
