Instructional Leadership Corps Launched at Lakeport Unified School District
The morning sessions of a recent LAUSD professional development training session were different from anything LUSD teachers experienced before. The sessions were developed and implemented based on LUSD teachers’ needs, thanks to the hard work of the Lakeport Unified Instructional Leadership Corps, or ILC.
The work to date of the Instructional Leadership Corps (ILC), a program formed in a collaboration between the California Techers' Association, the Stanford Center for Opportunity Policy in Education and National Board Resource Center (NBRC) at Stanford University, was covered in the October/November issue of CTA's California Educator.
SCOPE Executive Director, Jon Snyder, describes five schools (four in the United States and one in Singapore) that were intentional about and paid attention to time, especially to time within the school day for teachers to learn with and from each other.
SCOPE Associate Director, Ann Jaquith, discusses one district's effort to provide educators with sustained opportunities for learning so that teachers can better educate their students.
