This partner's approach and services
How we build district capacity
The Kirkland Group successfully builds capacity to support HQIM implementation among teachers and administrators. Our instructional coaches receive training on methods to tailor their approach to meet the needs of teachers with various levels of experience to build trusting professional relationships. Individualized professional learning support is provided throughout the school year to support teachers’ use of the curriculum. Instructional coaches provide modeling, co-teaching options, and opportunities for reflection and feedback. Our individualized services are targeted and provide extensive guidance and assistance for teachers who can benefit from sustained support.
How we provide curriculum-aligned PL
Our professional development workshops build the capacity of teachers and leaders to raise and sustain student achievement. Delivered by our team of experienced coaches, our technical solutions feature in-depth guidance with the implementation of HQIM and best practices directly informed by research and our long-standing involvement with schools and districts.
The Kirkland Group’s instructional coaches focus on instructional planning and procedures, instructional delivery, instructional environment, assessment, and HQIM. Using information compiled from school data, and with an array of best practices, our instructional coaches customize support plans based on the individual needs of each district, school, teacher, and student.
