The purpose of an Implementation Audit or Needs Assessment is to take the pulse of your Common Core or other state standards English Language Arts and Mathematics implementation in a districtwide and/or schoolwide setting. Classroom observation is used to calibrate the status of implementation and identify any emerging issues. The district will receive a comprehensive report identifying current strengths and needs as well as recommendations.
Executive Coaching and Support
During Site Implementation visits, a CORE leadership expert will work closely with the building administrators in a mentoring relationship to provide deep support, planning and just-in-time information. Each site visit will include ongoing standards implementation work, collaborative planning between the CORE staff and the site administration, problem-solving discussions, review of data and plans for interventions for staff and students, and ongoing classroom walk-throughs. Each session will culminate with joint planning and follow-up. The CORE staff will continue to support the administrators through email and periodic phone conferences. Every monthly visit cycle will be followed by a written summary report.
