As the world of work changes at a rate faster than ever, the demands on educators grow, but one thing has remained the same: educators are asked to do more with less.
At New Tech Network (NTN), District and School Coaches, all educators themselves, have seen nearly every type of financial circumstance and have partnered with district leaders to find solutions that address the needs of their district and community.
Funding an NTN partnership typically requires a combination of district general funds, state and federal dollars (e.g., School Improvement Grant) and donations/ contributions from the community to implement and sustain their NTN investment. During the planning process, NTN spends time and effort to ensure funding resources are available to help interested districts understand how to best make an investment in New Tech Network.
In a partnership with New Tech Network, teachers, staff, parents, and community know what to expect throughout the process of creating and sustaining whole school transformation; NTN makes the unpredictable predictable. From planning through implementation, NTN provides a one-stop-shop for whole school transformation delivered at the highest quality.
Decades of experience have proven that a piecemeal approach – hiring a collage of vendors to implement changes or train staff – is ineffective and unpredictable. It’s easy for educators to excuse away previous piecemeal attempts. But why do educators continue to approach innovation in piecemeal efforts? For many educators, “piecemeal” equals “cheaper.”
In reality, it is difficult for anyone to predict the cost of selecting a variety of vendors – variations in the length and depth of engagement, vendor quality, and location belie an average cost. What NTN does know for sure is that vendors with short-term intentions and unsustainable solutions have no real stake in the success of your school. New Tech Network is different.
