We believe:

  • All students, regardless of school or classroom they attend, should have access to high quality instruction.
  • Students with disabilities have the right to an education with their age and grade level peers.
  • Effective teacher supervision and evaluation emphasizes collegial relationships and quality feedback for growth and development.
  • Fidelity of implementation is essential to monitoring, supporting and sustaining change in practice.
  • School programs must be structured in ways that result in equitable educational outcomes.
  • Teacher efficacy is important to the growth and achievement of students.
  • Job embedded growth and support is the avenue to improved teacher effectiveness.
