Match Community Day School - Boston, MA
Match Community Day School is an elementary school in the Hyde Park neighborhood of Boston, Massachusetts.
Through whole group professional development, instructionally focused team meetings, and individual observation and coaching cycles, teachers are given adequate time and practice to focus on a specific instructional strategy until they demonstrate mastery.
It is part of the Match Education Public Charter School network, which operates four schools in the greater Boston area.
Match Community Day students typically enter far below grade level, but make significant academic gains.
Match Community Day provides a continuous feedback loop for teachers that focuses on a single topic or strategy.
Teachers have a variety of integrated opportunities to practice the strategy, and receive feedback from experts in a supportive environment focused on continuous improvement. This support is sustained until teachers show mastery.
The school’s instructional leadership team plans whole group professional development for teaching staff on a singular instructional focus, which is identified through data collected on teachers’ needs.

The observer reviews observation data with teachers 1:1 and they collaboratively determine strategies for improvement. Teachers can also use coaching time to practice a particular skill.
The instructional leadership team conducts observations of teachers, sometimes with video, and norm on what they see in classrooms. Observations help identify additional whole-group professional development needs as well we individual coaching needs.
Grade Level Teams
The principal follows up on PD sessions in grade team meetings to discuss how the strategy can be implemented.
Match Community Day has an early release day for students every week to provide 2 hours of uninterrupted time for whole group professional development.
Teachers have at least 60 minutes of time twice per week to meet in teacher teams or with instructional leaders 1:1 in coaching meetings.
Common norms and protocols ensure that collaborative planning time is meaningful and productive.
