Roles in OC

Teacher with student at active board
  • Multi-Classroom Leader (MCL)

    The Multi-Classroom Leader leads a small team of teachers and support staff and is responsible for the student load of the full team. The MCL organizes the team to review student progress and change instruction to ensure high levels of learning for every child. The MCL is fully accountable for the learning and development of all students taught by the team members. They provide feedback to the principal about the team’s development and needed support.


    The Multi-Classroom Leader, or MCL, role in Rowan-Salisbury Schools, will be “partial release.” Partial-release MCLs have their own classroom of record and teach for part of the day but have release time to leave their classroom to work with their team teachers. This video provides an overview of the partial-release role, which can help schools to achieve a schoolwide reach of MCL teams in a financially sustainable way.


    Reach Associate (RA)

    The Reach Associate (RA) assists with instruction and takes responsibility for the non-instructional duties of a team of teachers. The RA assists with and facilitates small and large-group student learning. RAs manage procedures and supervise student behavior during transitions, lunch, recess, assemblies, and other unstructured activities and while teachers deliver instruction.
