21st Century Cross-Trained Generalist Coaching Models as Time Savers
For Principals and Instructional Coaches—for Sites or District
To implement CCSS and meet the challenges of today’s learners, district leaders (cabinet, board of education, union leaders, community leaders, and site administrators) need to see themselves as learners first. Through inquiry processes, TIDES brings district leadership teams together to explore innovative approaches to rethink the future of education in their district. These district leadership institutes can lay the foundation for a strong learning organization that capitalizes on everyone’s expertise.

For Leadership Teams
Leadership teams are critical for school and student success. TIDES teaches inquiry processes to help leadership teams set and maintain direction based on data and develop an implementation plan. Teams learn how to use an inquiry question to guide job-embedded professional development and monitor for results. Members of the team learn the importance of their role as instructional leaders and how to lead grade-level or department work.
