Redesigning Schools to Reach Every Student with Excellent Teachers: Summary of Teacher Career Paths
Public Impact
These career paths match 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 models create new roles and teams enabling all teachers and staff to develop and contribute to excellence. In "reach-extended roles," excellent teachers take responsibility for more students or contribute intellectual and performance abilities to produce digitized instruction or instructional tools that other teachers or students may use. In "support roles," other teachers work with reach-extending teachers, contribute to excellence, and develop their teaching prowess. Teachers most often will work in person in schools, but they also may teach from remote locations using interactive audio and video technology. Teachers may move among paths during their careers, and some roles may be combined. Pay for a given level will vary across paths. Schools using these models also may continue to offer "traditional teaching roles," for example to new teachers and to those not working in reach-extended classrooms. (Contains 9 notes.)
