Mastery Charter High School (Mastery) is a nonprofit organization, with 15 local education agencies (LEAs) as partners (totaling 27 schools, serving 13,000+ k-12 students). All of these schools are considered high-need schools and will be served by the current project. After 13 years making significant gains as a network of charter schools, Mastery determined a need to shift course after noticing stagnating student outcomes. In 2014, after intense evaluation of Mastery's prior instructional model, the grantee developed and implemented Mastery 3.0 as a shift in its core school model. Implementing the new model in full required major investments in teacher and leader supports. With a new 5-year strategic plan that spans through 2021 (the same time period as the current TIF project), Mastery is currently focusing on building world class human capital systems within its organization, and working to share what it learns to help make Philadelphia and Camden an attractive hub for high-quality educators.
