In a typical system, hiring simply fills vacancies. Teachers have traditional roles that don’t leverage their unique talents, and high performers leave at higher rates than others.
With Strategic School Design, school leaders hire based on their school design needs and gaps in staff expertise. School leaders retain high performers by giving them additional responsibilities and opportunities for impact, recognition, and pay. Underperformers are efficiently exited. Teacher roles use teacher time and assets to meet diverse student needs, extend the reach of strong performers, and advance school goals.
