New Schools for New Orleans (NSNO), a nonprofit organization launched in 2006, has formed a partnership with six local charter management organizations (CMOs) in New Orleans, Louisiana.  For school year 2016-2017, there are 23 schools among the 6 CMO partners.  The number of schools may increase to 30 within the five years of the grant. New Orleans has a unique decentralized system of schools that allows CMOs to make autonomous staffing, budget, curricular, and operations decisions based needs the communities they serve. The project will serve as a model for implementing a decentralized human capital management system (HCMS) that balances standardized and customized elements based on educator needs in each CMO.

 

The project focuses on providing technical support for building performance-based compensation systems (PBCSs) and pathways, as well as support for CMOs to provide differentiated professional development for teachers, leaders, and other personnel based on growth areas they identify through the evaluation and support system. NSNO will build on its previous TIF grant efforts to ensure it successfully meets grant objectives.
