The school board in Indianapolis has approved a new teacher contract that will allow six schools to implement an experimental program that allows high-performing teachers to take on new roles, reach more students, and earn higher salaries. The schools will work with Public Impact to adopt the Opportunity Culture model, which has already been adopted by some schools in Syracuse, N.Y. and Charlotte-Mecklenburg, N.C.

Bryan C. Hassel and Emily Ayscue Hassel of Public Impact have written extensively about Opportunity Culture for Education Next:

    Just to clarify…the new contract allows any school to implement Opportunity Culture. It is not limited to six schools.
