After making key design decisions to support the Opportunity Culture work, districts must secure a commitment from principals at potential sites. Principals should be committed to extending the reach of excellent teachers and building an Opportunity Culture at their schools from the beginning of the process.
Participating principals should then establish a school design team to help design, plan, and support the implementation of the Opportunity Culture initiative and extend the reach of excellent teachers. Districts must work hand-in-hand with principals to ensure they have the resources and support needed to conduct this work.
The primary objectives for this phase of work are to:
- Introduce the Opportunity Culture/reach extension concepts to school leadership teams;
- Secure school-level commitments to the work;
- Select school design teams and introduce the initiative; and
- Conduct school needs assessment.
