Leadership Coaching

On-site Specialist Support for school leadership and leadership teams supports ongoing implementation of initiatives and reviews and refines the Instructional Planning Workgroup Implementation. Leadership Coaching can include Focus Walks using “look-fors” from the Leadership Network Meetings, data analysis, and the ongoing analysis of student work from performance tasks. In this way, leadership can take timely action to support the classroom practices that are needed to meet the performance expectations of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS).


Outcomes are negotiated in developing specific leadership coaching; however, by the end of this session, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the role of interim and culminating performance tasks in a unit of instruction.
  • Observe a video of teacher practice to identify evidence of indicators and criteria of “look-fors."
  • Practice feedback based on evidence of practice.
  • Look for patterns of implementation across classrooms.
  • Observe Instructional Planning Workgroups.
