  • Non-Tenured Teachers Coaching Options:

    During 2017-2018, all non-tenured probationary teachers have the opportunity to participate in a deep coaching cycle.  This cycle lasts between 4-6 weeks and includes two recorded lessons, a student focused goal, and implementation of an instructional strategy focused on achieving the goal.
