Improving the Instructional Program

School leaders work to improve the instructional program in a number of ways, including:

  • leading discussions about effective 21st Century teaching and learning practices
  • facilitate regular opportunities for staff to learn from one another and provide structures that support teachers in the collaborative work for the instructional improvement of 21st Century teaching and learning
  • Having frequent, meaningful interactions with teachers, students and parents that work together on problem solving and decision making to promote a positive school climate.
