In Opportunity Culture districts, finance staff members take the time early in the design process to plan for long-term Opportunity Culture financial sustainability, by:
- Providing information about how school principals can use various funding streams
- Planning how to give principals essential autonomy to use their school’s funding to pay Opportunity Culture educator supplements
- Helping to determine supplements for Opportunity Culture educators, with the help of Public Impact’s comprehensive analyses
- Providing ongoing guidance to principals about how to combine school-based funding sources to finance Opportunity Culture roles
By codifying changes and becoming familiar with Public Impact’s financial planning tools, finance staff can help districts transform to high-growth learning, sustainably and responsibly for the long-term.
