Support for Your Leadership Team

We believe working with a local leadership team is organized to plan and implement the work of MTTC is critical to long term success.    The services below can be targeted and planned to meet the needs of a leadership team in a school, district or service area.

•  Developing Professional Development Plan:

We provide onsite and virtual assistance in developing a comprehensive professional development plan.  This would entail working with your leadership team to clarify their goals and then coach them through the process of developing a professional development plan that includes the training needed for successful implementation.  Schools with clearly stated goals and a “game plan” have found they are more focused and more productive.  This service is customized for an individual school or system and includes: onsite work with the team, virtual follow-up, and/or planning hours if needed.

•  Developing the Capacity to Lead

The role of the district leaders, building principals, and teacher leaders is critical if a school is going to successfully implement the Common Core Standards into the Curriculum.  We coach your team to identify the roles and responsibilities leaders play in the implementation process, clarify the vision and action steps, set realistic goals, and consider digital applications and strategies leaders can use to successfully lead the process in their school or district.  This service is customized for an individual school or system and includes: onsite training, virtual coaching, and/or targeted web sessions.

•  Using LumiBook and LivePlanner to sustain the work
