This week, school administrators, lead teachers, and central office leadership held meetings with teachers and allowed them to explore accountability data and classroom walkthrough data to help teachers gain a greater understanding of district-wide trends, strengths, and areas for improvement. This presentation provided teachers with the rationale for our district-wide focus on the Instructional Core Framework, which will roll out throughout the 2016-17 and 2017-18 school years.
Our goal is to provide teachers across our district with a common language and understanding of instruction and pedagogy. Furthermore, we will be providing many resources and tools for support. It is exciting to see our teachers engaged in data conversations and discussing how to continuously improve instruction. We have some amazing teachers and leaders in Newton-Conover City Schools, and our goal is to tap into their expertise and build on our tools and resources to improve our overall instructional practices.
If you want more information on the Newton-Conover City Schools Instructional Core Framework, contact Dr. Heather Mullins, Chief Academic Officer, or a member of the NCCS Curriculum Council.
