Leverage additional per-pupil funding to transform a 4-year or more F-rated campus into school using the ACE model with excellent educators and staff

Key Elements

  • Planning Year Leader with dedicated time to lead a school restart process facilitated by a TA provider
  • ESF-aligned school model that implements the five core components of the ACE model
  • Implement all components of the Resource Campus model as described in HB 1525, including (but not limited to):
    • Participation in the Teacher Incentive Allotment (TIA) and ADSY programs
    • Adoption and implementation of High-Quality Instruction Materials (HQIM)
    • Minimum teaching experience of three years for all educators
    • At least 60% of campus-based administrators and educators must have demonstrated instructional effectiveness in the previous school year

Pre-Planning Considerations

  • How will the Planning Year Leader be supported by Human Resources and Finance to develop a strategic compensation plan?
  • Does this leader have a clear vision for the Resource campus requirements and preparing educators?
  • What data, processes, and tools will be used to select effective educators for the school?
  • How will you need to prepare and train your staff to implement the new Resource campus requirements and ACE model with HQIM and aligned, embedded assessments with fidelity?
  • How will campus structures and routines provide educators with consistent observation and feedback cycles, and opportunities for regular data analysis and PLCs?
