Why is Coaching Through Systems That Work Important?
Coaching has become the primary approach for developing school and district staff members. Coaching is occurring on all levels within a school and for various groups of constituents. District and school leaders, teachers, counselors, teaching assistants, parents, and other staff members are receiving coaching on a regular-basis. In addition, due to the ever-shrinking school and district budgets, teacher leaders and peer-coaching are becoming popular alternatives to the traditional methods of contracting external coaches. The REACH© 2018 Whole School Reform Conference: Coaching Through Systems That Work is dedicated to delivering practical strategies that schools and districts can employ immediately to increase staff members’ performance.
