“We’re excited that they will be able to help so many of our entry level teachers as well as veteran teachers to fully integrate Common Core in all of our classrooms.  They will be able to model lessons and be a support system for our teachers,” said Hill.
As part of the position, the coaches will also work as a mentor to teachers and as a data coaches to assist schools with disaggregation of student achievement data from assessments to impact instruction.
