Helping Students, Supporting Teachers

The district is researching ways to improve student achievement by offering leadership roles for teachers in the area of instruction. Our educators serving as instructional leaders could model effective teaching strategies, work directly in the classroom with teachers to help students learn, share research and much more. There are different ways, or models, that school districts use to provide leadership roles for teachers. The district has established a Teacher Leadership Committee to study these models. It has also applied for a state grant designed to help districts pay for this research. The committee may select a model to use in our district and apply for an additional state grant to implement a teacher leadership model.
