What does a central office Teaching & Learning or Curriculum & Instruction department or function do when it strategically supports student and professional growth in schools?

Our research shows that such units must:

  • Undo their traditional silos and work more strategically together across content areas
  • Collaborate with Human Resources to help ensure that teachers and leaders are placed in the right settings and positions for their success
  • Reorient their school improvement planning process from a compliance/reporting focus to one that helps T&L staff and school leadership teams understand school strengths and areas for growth and align resources to both.
