In schools that have limited teaching positions and struggle to offer advanced courses, Remotely Located Multi-Classroom Leadership can provide teachers with the support and career opportunities that in-person Multi-Classroom Leadership provides. Remotely located multi-classroom leaders lead a team of educators who are located in multiple schools and districts while providing some direct instruction to the team’s students. Remotely Located Multi-Classroom Leadership can be offered to districts by a provider within a state or region, or a district can supply the position and arrange to share it with other districts.
In spring 2019, the first pilot of a part of this concept took place in North Carolina. Funded by the College Board, the pilot was designed by Public Impact and carried out by the North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics, a residential public high school in Durham, N.C. Read about this effort and watch an accompanying video here.
