6 sessions for teacher liaisons
3 sessions for assistant principals
Focus on CCLS Shift 4: Text-Based Answers
Coaching work organized around 3 goals:
Develop capacity within schools to shift instruction in support of desired student outcomes.
Facilitate structures that capitalize on potential for collaborative instructional growth across network schools.
Meet the instructional needs of schools across the spectrum of success while supporting implementation of broad reform initiatives to support student achievement.

The professional development moves toward meeting these goals through four components, designed to further develop what we did well this year and add elements to address identified needs.

CCLS Literacy PDs were successful in:
Coaching components work to ensure that we address the needs of all schools and teachers with flexibility.
Creating rigorous text-dependent questions
Teaching students the skills of close reading
Implementing classroom structures to support accountable talk
Engaging students in seminar and discussions
Instructional Coaches were successful in:
Utilizing protocols, routines, and reflection strategies that can be transferred to the classroom
Fostering teamwork and collaboration among participants
Establishing the routine of Learning Stations to deliver an array of instructional strategies and tools
Professional development series in literacy and math
Minimum 6 sessions per subject; each day includes three phases: classroom practices, school-wide implementation, and inquiry around teacher work
Follow-up assessment and turnkey support
PSO and CFN coaches collaborate on CCLS PD, but work in schools independently.
Assistant Principal
School Instructional Lead
Purpose & Objectives:
Coaching portfolios range from 4 to 12 schools
Instructional Specialists focus on implementing grant initiatives and growing proficiency through inquiry
Achievement Coaches work in a variety of capacities as directed by principals at school sites
Coaches also plan and implement site-specific PD
Within the PSO, coaching work is supported by inquiry
ACs also receive training through the Department of Education
Build capacity at the school level by implementing CCLS best practices at the team level
Develop a demonstration lab classroom to exemplify CCLS instruction
Evidence & Artifacts of Impact
Teacher team meetings focus on initiatives delivered at PD
Lab classroom serves as a model for other teachers and is used to promote intervisitations
Inquiry around teacher work
Leadership Development Facilitators and Network Leaders oversee coaching work.
DOE Achievement Coaches and PSO Instructional Specialists
Small groups of network teachers (up to 12)
Coaching pairs - ACs & ISs
Purpose & Objectives:
Provide targeted professional development on a range of topics
Focuses on specific teacher learning needs outside of those addressed at full-day workshops
Access to all teachers - no prerequisites
Foster collaboration and inter-network support systems for teachers, particularly those at small schools
Collaboration makes our work stronger.
Outcomes improve when the work has a clear focus.
We need better structures to assess school needs.
Assessing our own progress requires better practice in data collection.
We need to develop more flexibility to meet the demands of equity across the network.
Teacher choice is a powerful engagement technique.
We need to formalize partnerships between coaches and those at schools who makes things happen.
The 2013-2014 Instructional Coaching Plan builds structures to meet these needs.
Evidence & Artifacts of Impact
Teacher products reflecting and applying their learning from the session
Inquiry around student work
Robust online community - a forum for participants to post and share their work
All Network schools
A combination of PSO and DOE staff members
Purpose & Objectives:
Establish an equitable process for assessing and evaluating school needs
Facilitate the delegation of ACs and ISs
Provide coaches and team members a broad, objective perspective of schools' strengths and areas in need of support
Monitor implementation of initiatives from CCLS Instructional Leadership Cohort
Collect evidence of turnkeying at school level and in demonstration classroom
Evidence & Artifacts of Impact
Collaborative, cross-school meetings driven by school leader and/or teacher interest
Topics could include engagement strategies, facilitating protocols, etc.
Open-ended model, includes inquiry around student work
Interviews with administrators, teachers, and students
Observations of classrooms and teacher team meetings

Purpose & Objectives:
Provide a menu of support structures in order to meet schools where they are on the continuum of success
Tailor a low-touch, high impact work plan to build school capacity and move instruction
Directly improve student achievement
