Student-Centered Coaching

Shifting coaching towards a data-driven approach.

Save the Date!

Student-Centered Coaching is an evidence-based instructional coaching model that shifts the focus from ‘fixing’ teachers to collaborating with them to design instruction that targets student outcomes. Shifting coaching towards a data-driven approach increases the efficacy of teachers, coaches, and most importantly our students.

Participants will learn concrete strategies for implementing a coaching model that is grounded in student evidence. This will include an introduction to the core practices for student-centered coaching. We will also explore how principals and district leaders can take an active role in leading a coaching effort.
