How Principals can Use Video Enhanced Coaching to Raise Student Achievement

Teachers are the X factor in a school building when it comes to improving student achievement–with great leadership coming in a close second.

This webinar series is intended for principals and school leaders who want to implement video-enhanced coaching in the 2017-2018 school year using the Sibme platform. Each webinar in the series is designed to show principals and school leaders how to complete the work they will need to attend to in the month that follows the webinar.  Ultimately, Dr. Goree will share the process that she uses to ensure that every teacher in her building participates in a minimum of 3 coaching cycles.
