Schools get better when they have the support of district leadership. Through professional development and coaching, we help the district move from a place of “compliance” to a “system of support”.
Through participation in a series of seven professional development modules, instructional coaches learn how to use practical tools and resources to support classroom teachers at each tier.
Our executive coaching helps school leaders deepen their learning, set goals, use data, and focus their leadership more on instruction and less on management to transform teaching and learning.
Schools get better when they have the support of district leadership. Through professional development and executive coaching, we help district leadership shift their efforts from “compliance” to becoming a “system of support”.
Designed to support the induction of leaders, we lead workshops that gather data to assist in the development of a targeted entry plan that will guide the new principal’s work for the year.
With the goal of working ourselves out of a job, we offer professional development and support for an internal leadership team to design, write and deliver high-quality professional development.
