Redesigning Schools to Reach Every Student with Excellent Teachers: Financial Planning Summary
Public Impact
This brief summarizes the ways that schools and their teachers can simultaneously reach more students with excellent teaching, expand teachers' career opportunities, and sustainably fund higher pay and other priorities. This is based on Public Impact's school models that use job redesign and technology to extend the reach of excellent teachers to more students, for more pay, within budget. Most of these models create new roles and collaborative teams, enabling all teachers and staff to develop and contribute to excellence. This brief summarizes: (1) School models for extending the reach of excellent teachers; (2) How reach models can generate savings that schools can use for higher pay and other priorities; (3) How schools can use savings, including paying teachers more; and (4) A comparison of savings and cost factors, and of pay increase potential, when using different reach models. Model overview table is appended. (Contains 3 notes.)
