District Improvement and Professional Learning

  • District Improvement includes the coordination of staff professional learning, the implementation of a systematic school and district improvement approach, the collection and use of student data, and the direct coaching for school leaders and improvement teams to support their use of school improvement processes.

    Additional supports in this area also include the oversight of the District’s gifted and talented program and the student accelerated placement and early entrance to Kindergarten and First Grade processes.
