Public Impact is the most experienced school and staffing transformation service in the U.S., with proven student learning results, high client satisfaction, a commitment to educator development and success, and models for sustainable higher pay for educators.
We created and lead the Opportunity Culture initiative, the nation’s largest and most successful school staffing design effort, supported by 25 years of research and over 10 years of Opportunity Culture implementation and related innovations.
Our mission is to improve education dramatically for all students, especially low-income students, students of color, and other students whose needs historically have not been well met
All our work supports our mission to improve education dramatically for all students, especially low-income students, students of color, and other students whose needs historically have not been well met.
Our staff, which includes many former educators, works with districts to spark strong student learning and educator satisfaction. Our Opportunity Culture process guides you through a redesign of educator roles and provides high-quality professional learning for people in these roles—leading to long-lasting, job-embedded and relevant PD to keep your schools soaring.
Thank you to all those who shared input that helped shape the development of Opportunity Culture models! They include:
- The dozens of educators who provided extensive input before Opportunity Culture models were created, including leaders of state and local teacher associations, Teach Plus fellows, and Educators for Excellence members
- Hundreds of educators in early Opportunity Culture schools who participated in interviews and convenings for ongoing model improvements
- Individuals in other education organizations who lent their expertise to shape the early development of the national Opportunity Culture initiative
