2. Is there flexibility in the way in which teachers and centers can participate?

Yes. Two models for participation currently exist. Teachers and sponsoring centers each contribute 10% of the cost of tuition. Sponsoring centers also provide 3 hours of paid release time per week. In one model, sponsoring centers agree to provide a 1.5% raise to the teacher upon the successful completion of each TEACH contract. In the other model, sponsoring centers agree to provide a $300 bonus to the teacher upon successful completion of each TEACH contract.
