Cumberland County Schools (CCS) Joins Forces with Opportunity Culture to Increase Student Success
To provide all students with excellent teaching and to help students close achievement gaps and leap ahead, our schools are creating an Opportunity Culture for their teachers and students. Opportunity Culture models enable schools to reach every student with excellent teachers and their teams—consistently—while paying teachers more for their extra responsibilities, and helping all educators improve on the job and work collaboratively. All pay supplements are funded through reallocations of existing budgets--no temporary grants.
Our school district is part of a growing, national Opportunity Culture movement to extend the reach of excellent teachers, principals, and their teams to more students, for more pay, within regular school budgets. That means great opportunities to have a fulfilling career path full of support.
What is Opportunity Culture?
Opportunity Culture roles enable schools to reach every student with excellent teachers and their teams while paying teachers more for their extra responsibilities, and helping all educators improve on the job and work collaboratively. You can find general information about the national initiative at OpportunityCulture.org.
How much more can I earn?
Beginning in fall 2021, 12 schools in CCS will launch their Opportunity Culture plans.
The Opportunity Culture application pool is open. The district will screen applicants for acceptance into the Opportunity Culture pool, from which schools can select applicants who best fit their openings. We are looking for excellent teachers with a track record of high-growth student learning, and outstanding paraprofessionals looking to take on more instructional duties. Review the criteria before applying.
