Support system for instructional coaches

The Teacher Leader Support System is a comprehensive statewide effort coordinated across AEAs to develop not only important teacher leader skills and competencies through evidence-based professional learning, but also build district leadership capacity to reach identified TLC goals and outcomes.

What makes it a System of Support?
Districts receive access and support for the following key components of a high quality coaching program designed for impact.

  • Kiano: Online data collection system
  • Collaborative online tools to support individual and team instructional coaching sessions aligned to several common instructional frameworks
  • Program Evaluation – multiple on-demand report functions for both coaches and district leaders to measure the implementation and impact of your TLC program
  • Technical Support – ongoing implementation support from your AEA representative
  • TLC Leadership Support/Consultation- Continuums of Instructional Coaching Program and Practice Standards to set goals for ongoing TLC program and coach development
  • Recommendations for ongoing in-district instructional coach forums/PLCs to support implementation
  • Professional Learning Series – Comprehensive (Year 1 and Year 2) and Special Topics (Year 2+) for coaches and other teacher leaders
