Instructional Coaching                             ‌

The Instructional Coach assists in building teacher capacity and understanding of instructional practices related to a Multi-tiered System of Support (MTSS), Common Core State Standards, culturally responsive practices, and data-based decision making to guide instruction for increased student performance. During the 2017-18 school year, there will be an emphasis on the ASD’s new literacy adoption.


The Instructional Coach will promote collaboration, provide guidance, and structure where needed, and focus on strengths, reflection and common issues of concern. Instructional Coaches are responsible for providing job embedded professional learning and supporting high quality instruction in classrooms through modeling, observing, co-teaching and providing feedback. The coach will play a strong role in collaborating with staff to analyze and use student growth and achievement data to impact instructional decision making. The coach’s role is nonsupervisory and does not include evaluation of colleagues.

  • Facilitate ongoing, on-site professional development to empower research-based instructional improvement

  • Effectively utilize data based decision making to inform instructional practices
