School Improvement Specialist Development & Certification
Guide Schools, School Systems and Educators to Improve School Performance and Student Achievement
Develop competency and demonstrate proficiency in using systematic processes to guide systemic, collaborative improvement within schools and school systems. The LAUNCH! Learning & Performance Journey provides a performance-based development experience for state, regional and local education agency facilitators of improvement.
Typically school improvement specialists are assigned based on their previous experience in leading or teaching, without specialized training and tools for their new facilitative roles. LAUNCH! equips these professionals to successfully guide those they support to achieve higher levels of performance.
The ten-course series is offered over the span of a school year, or in a six-month cohort. The experience is rigorous and supports participants to immediately apply their learning on the job to support the right performance and results.
Title II funds and ESSER funds may used to fund participation.

Learning with Peers
Synchronous learning in class is aligned with asynchronous peer-to-peer learning and coaching via the Promote digital platform. Participants report the rich peer interaction to be a highly valuable aspect of the experience, as well as the opportunity to immediately apply their learning to meeting their goals. The most common participant response: “I wish I had this training earlier in my career. It really has improved my practices!”

The School Improvement Specialist Field Guide
Dr. Judith Hale, CPT and Deb Page, CPT researched the practices of effective school improvement facilitators and codified and validated the ten standards of effective Performance Improvement Facilitator practice. These practices and dozens of proven tools are embedded in the School Improvement Specialist Field Guide (Corwin Press), used by all participants as the key text for the LAUNCH! series.
