Our Commitment to Educators

Dedicated educators deliver on our promises every day.

The success of the Academies is built on the foundation of the great teachers and strong school leadership.  Retaining top-performing educators and creating career pathways to leadership roles is a top priority.  To retain talented teachers, CCS makes targeted investments to support them by offering reward, retention, and development programs including:

  • Career Path/Leadership Development: staff positions and mentoring to develop teachers interested in leadership roles such as principal, vice principal, instructional coach and/or lead subject coordinator (i.e., Math, Language, STREAM, Campus Ministry, Data/Testing etc.).
  • Pay for Performance: higher compensation for the top 20% of teachers.
  • Master’s Degree Program at Boston College: new pilot program funded by CCS for up to five Academy teachers annually to receive their Master of Education in Curriculum and Instruction, with an 85% subsidized discount.
  • College Loan Debt Reduction: $200 monthly principal payments to reduce loan debt for teachers, with retirement and financial counseling for all staff. Only 4% of employers offer this employee benefit nationally.
  • Teacher Retention “Flight Risk” Fund: new funding to respond quickly to retain quality teachers outside of the annual salary review period.
  • Yawkey Teaching Excellence Awards: a one-time financial award of $2,500 – $5,000 for five top performing teachers annually.
