School Improvement Professional Learning and Tools Support Georgia Amid Historic Challenges
Today, more than ever the capacity to guide improvement and reinvent education in Georgia is a valuable skill set. Our virtual, rigorous LAUNCH!™ Learning & Performance Journey™ develops educators to become School Improvement Specialists who can guide schools to address their challenges and reach their goals collaboratively. This development program is rated by a large majority of those who complete it as the most effective of their career. Participants describe it as “effective, practical, with tools and processes that are immediately useful to guide and support school improvement”. Participants work on real school improvement challenges of their choosing, applying proven tools and processes.
Hundreds of school improvement facilitators and education leaders have successfully completed the rigorous, job-embedded program, applying their learning and tools to their most challenging school improvement needs. The Journey will help districts and schools choose the best systemic approaches, applying funding from the Education Stabilization Fund through the Coronavirus Aid Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act for the Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief Fund (ESSER Fund).
