Building a Better Teacher Pipeline

​​Charter Champions' first priority is addressing the critical staffing needs of Rochester area charter schools. Our goal is to be a one stop, tailored network that connects talent to charter schools. We are working hard to not only build more efficient ways of discovering and hiring talent, but we're innovating new ways to recruit, train and retain staff.

Frequently teachers are hesitant to teach at charter schools, and are ill-informed about the ways working for charter schools can enhance their careers and their impact. Furthermore, charter schools have unique abilities to train educated candidates to teach and to grow their staff from within. There should be a better way to connect to a mutually beneficial future and that's what we're committed to creating.

In Early 2023 Charter Champions will launch our pipeline portal, an intuitive and headache-free system that will connect schools to qualified candidates. While this tool is still in development, we're encouraging local colleges and charter schools to connect with us about becoming potential partners.
