Education Company School Improvement Network Creates a Teacher Effectiveness Platform That Helps Teachers Develop the Skills Needed to Get 100% of Students College and Career Ready
Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) June 26, 2012
Chet Linton, CEO of School Improvement Network, has been working in education for over 20 years, helping teachers improve classroom practice.
“I’ve spent many hours in many classrooms,” Linton says, “and the schools that have always impressed me most are the ones that take a desperate situation and create something entirely new—an environment in which teachers are at their best, and where students succeed. Over the past two decades, my colleagues and I at School Improvement Network have watched teachers from Baltimore to Tucson take kids that the system had given up on, and prepare 100% of them for college and career.”
“If this can happen in the most disadvantaged school,” Linton continues, “then it can certainly happen in schools at every point on the achievement scale. With the right training, every teacher can be effective, and every student can be college and career ready. This is School Improvement Network’s mission, the vision that all of our work emanates from.”
In order to prepare teachers to get 100% of students college and career ready, School Improvement Network has developed the Teacher Effectiveness System, a step-by-step process that improves teacher practice, and arms educators with a set of powerful tools that can be used to complete each step. This set of tools, along with the system they support, incorporates every step of the teacher learning cycle to help educators get all students college and career ready.
“The Teacher Effectiveness System is the culminating achievement of years of researching and developing professional development for educators,” says Linton. “It incorporates all of School Improvement Network’s tools—PD 360, Common Core 360, and Observation 360—into a single sign on platform, and integrates them to guide educators through the entire process of making teachers more effective.”
