    Accelerating Campus Excellence Overview:
    Strong Principals and Effective Teachers within a Culture of High Expectations

    Philosophy: ACE team members are deeply focused on the mission of accelerating learning to close achievement gaps and ensure a college-ready foundation for each scholar. The mission is embraced with urgency, determination and perseverance. High expectations are demonstrated through extended hours with learning opportunities for students as well as professional development commitments for continuous improvement.

    Mission: We will accelerate transformation of historically struggling schools through (1) strong leadership, (2) effective teaching and (3) high expectations to ensure each and every student develops the foundation for college readiness. Our schools will become beacons of hope and models of excellence within our communities.

    Strong Principals and Effective Teachers: The cornerstone of the ACE program is highly effective teachers and leadership teams on campuses. Recognizing the challenges that a turnaround environment poses, the district developed an incentive plan to attract highly effective teachers relocating to an ACE campus. Stipend amounts depend on the position, and, in the case of teachers, on TEI effectiveness ratings.

    Teaching at an ACE campus requires not only foundational teaching skills, but also supplemental competencies to ensure that educators are ready, willing, and able to persevere through challenges. Teachers must have competencies necessary to build a strong classroom and campus culture of social emotional support for students from a variety of socioeconomic backgrounds.

    1. Stipend incentives are awarded to faculty members for additional time commitments
