About our District Planning Services
As a not-for-profit, our goal is to build district capacity. We partner with districts to connect professional development strategies with school improvement goals. We bring districts proven approaches that improve educator effectiveness leading to better outcomes for their students.
Establish the vision
Learning objectives are an essential part of any lesson plan and a district's vision and core values, along with the improvement plans, define the high level learning objectives for the educators. Teachers21 works with districts to assess how best to translate those objectives into a series of internally and externally-led professional development activities that will achieve the desired professional growth.
With limited time and money, districts must decide how to have the greatest possible impact from the initiatives they undertake. Teachers21 helps districts connect their professional development curricula and associated coaching and mentoring activities to support and increase the effectiveness of their investments. We also help schools with designing and implementing innovative ways to use time on learning.
By helping districts identify and leverage the strengths and human capital asset of the organization, and building additional capacity where needed, Teachers21 helps leaders throughout a district take ownership for sustaining and building upon successful initiatives while jettisoning those that are not having the desired impact. When learners take responsibility for their own learning, they achieve the highest levels of success.
Teachers21 meets with district leadership teams, at no cost, to learn about their vision, goals and challenges and to devise a program to meet the learning objectives of the district. We then develop a program outline and work with the district to refine it to meet district constraints, and help plan for implementation.
