Think of how meaningful it would be to have training in highly effective instructional strategies for your teachers right on-site and built into their school day.  For this initiative we have designated 6-8 total contact hours per teacher group.  These are done in 1 ½ - 2 hour sessions at a time allowing you the ideal situation of rotating groups of teacher/substitutes throughout your building.  These sessions reflect Domains 1 & 2 of the RISE Teacher Evaluation Rubric.


Professional Learning Community

What does professional learning look like in your school or district? Is there a system in place, an established framework where teachers are consistently collaborating to improve instruction? This is a research proven best-practice that not only improves student learning, but the culture of the building. Teachers feel empowered when they belong to a high-functioning PLC.

Professional learning communities just don't happen. Training is necessary for this to occur successfully. When schools opt for this on-site professional development, the presenter assists teachers in determining the most needed instructional strategies for their work and then guides principals and teachers how to establish a PLC as they learn these strategies. This is professional learning at its best!
