Professional Learning and Leadership
The Department of Teacher-Leadership
Schools participating in the Teacher-Leader Pathway think strategically and innovatively about how to optimally organize their resources—time, people, and money. As a result, the cohorts of schools within the district that participate have a significant increase in the number of students receiving instruction from an excellent teacher and are seeing benefits of increased student achievement and teacher capacity. Strategic design plans enable our schools to offer, and sustain, teaching models which allow excellent teacher-leaders to reach more students, support more teachers, and advance in their careers while getting paid more for their extra responsibilities.
There are 5 licensed Teacher-Leader roles and 1 support role, each compensated on an advanced scale.
