Before considering the recommendations below, we recommend that toolkit users first read the introduction explaining why facilities & resources matter for improving teacher working conditions and student learning conditions.

Recommendation One:
Provide clean, safe, well-maintained school environments that promote learning. - Resources for related strategies

Recommendation Two:
Provide more convenient and consistent access to instructional technology, communication technology and office materials. - Resources for related strategies

Recommendation Three:
Ensure adequate professional space for teachers and paraprofessionals within school facilities. - Resources for related strategies

Recommendation Four:
Ensure sufficient
access to support personnel—tutors, family specialists, mental health professionals, nurses, psychologists and social workers. - Resources for related strategies

Throughout these recommendations, you will see resources represented as three distinct categories:

"Seeing It Work" represents real world examples of actual schools and communities implementing the reform strategies prescribed in the toolkit.
"Action Tool" represents a specific strategy, checklist of items to address, plan for immediate activity or targeted instruction on how to implement reform around teacher working conditions.
"Knowledge Tool" represents background research, academic studies, or relevant articles that may inform your work and help you better understand the broader context for your work on teacher working conditions.
