Looking for a way to improve student achievement in your school? Are your teachers frustrated with their current observation feedback? Are you looking to develop a more positive coaching culture in your building? Traditionally, efforts within public schools to improve student outcomes have not materialized with the desired results. Oftentimes, these efforts are implemented as "one more thing." This session focuses on the best strategy to improve the academic outcomes–good Tier 1 instruction with student-centered feedback for teachers. It is highly important that school leaders take up the mantle to be instructional leaders rather than managerial ones. By attending this session, you will discover one school’s answer to these questions, as well as learn how the administrative team earned their license to coach. Through the collaborative efforts of the Instructional Coach and the Wade Hampton High School administrative team, a two year professional learning plan was developed that incorporates instructional coaching cycles and a school wide focus on rigor. The plan prioritizes developing the administrative team into instructional leaders who can confidently engage in coaching conversations with teachers. Participants in this session will discover how to create a vision for professional learning and coaching cycles that includes: a timeline of implementation, an observation schedule, an observation template, and training for administrators!
