Options for Expanding a District's Teaching & Learning Team

For administrators looking to expand a district’s internal teaching & learning team’s services with the inclusion of an instructional coaching program or with the addition of instructional coaches for an existing program, three ways to do so are possible. One option is to develop, manage, and staff an employed program. Another option, described as outsourcing, is to hire external resources for teachers outside of the realm of the current teaching and learning team. A new option is to insource an expert math professional learning team. This means that a coaching program with experienced, expert coaches is seamlessly integrated with your existing curriculum and instruction team and co-managed by district and Pear School Solutions administrative teams.
