While we pursue long-term solutions to the compensation challenge through legislative advocacy, we have taken a step by launching the Teacher Excellence Fund as part of the new Great Hearts Leadership Society.

Here’s how it works: The Teacher Excellence Fund is a vehicle in which donors who desire to support teacher compensative may do so.  These gifts over and beyond Community Investment will be designated to the annual Teacher Excellence Fund at 100% with a 70/30% split between the families academy and a general fund to support less affluent. Monies raised through this fund will be returned to each academy in November to recognize and retain our most valued tenured teachers.
