North Little Rock Joins Opportunity Culture

July 11, 2017, CHAPEL HILL, N.C.— In Arkansas, North Little Rock Middle School will begin this fall using multi-classroom leadership—in which excellent teachers lead a teaching team, for more pay, within the regular school budget—as a pilot school for a statewide initiative to reach all students with excellent teaching.

Additionally, the district will begin using the Summit Learning Platform to personalize student learning. Summit Public Schools, located in California, created the platform to help students set and track goals at their own pace. The Arkansas Public School Resource Center (APSRC) introduced the platform to Arkansas educators and will support the implementation of it in 14 pilot schools across the state.

By merging the principles of an Opportunity Culture with Summit’s nationally acclaimed blended-learning model, North Little Rock Middle School will ensure that its 1,800 students benefit from a team-based and supportive school climate, Principal Lee Tackett said. Read the full press release…
