How Opportunity Culture® Models Help Address Challenges

Staffing Shortages

Staffing shortages have plagued some schools for decades. Our staffing designs provide a solution that shifts schools out of emergency hiring mode—and boosts learning. Learn how Opportunity they address staffing shortages—with high-paying advanced roles, improved support for new teachers, and staffing models that do not require filling every teacher vacancy to ensure that students have access to excellent instruction.

Small-Group Tutoring

Maximize the research-proven power of tutoring through Multi-Classroom Leader™ teams. These teams, with a proven, accountable team leader—paired with rotational scheduling often used in our models—make it possible for schools to scale up effective small-group tutoring by paraprofessionals and team teachers, helping to reach all students with personalized attention. Our SIMPLE-TC™ professional learning series on creating a tutoring culture can help.

Paid Teacher Residencies

Schools using these models can build teacher pipelines through yearlong, sustainably paid teacher residencies. Residents play critical roles for students and teachers by serving on teaching teams while learning teaching skills from the excellent team leader and team teachers. Paid residencies also address the need for teacher candidates to earn income while obtaining degrees, lowering the barriers to entering the profession
