Making the Most of Your Coaching Investment

A one-day session


  • Campus and district leaders
  • Instructional specialists and coaches

Grade-level focus:

  • K-12

In this session, you will explore a coherent set of tools and processes for initiating or strengthening instructional coaching programs.

You will explore a number of “innovation configurations” for a district coaching program, acquire easy-to-use tools for gathering data, and learn how to use supporting tools and processes in collaborative work with teachers.

You will also determine how these tools and processes fit within your current coaching program and map out implications and next steps for your program.

These resources are designed to support coaching initiatives throughout implementation, from initiating the conversation to assessing the need in your district to guiding the work of your coaches.

Participants will receive a copy of the Dana Center book Making the Most of Your Coaching Investment: Tools to Strengthen Your Local Instructional Coaching Program.

Making the Most of Your Coaching Investment (the book) is available for purchase.

The Dana Center thanks the Noyce Foundation, its Silicon Valley Mathematics Initiative, and its First in Mathematics Consortium for the use of their coaching resources, which are part of this professional development and accompanying book.
