CORE Leadership Development and Professional Learning

Ensure change and success are sustainable through leadership development and ongoing professional learning

At CORE, we believe that time is essential to successful professional learning. That’s why CORE services span multiple years. And during that time, we provide leadership mentoring to ensure that teaching practices — and student achievement — continue to grow long after we’re gone.

CORE coaching and implementation services are available to leadership teams and district and school administrators to build an internal capacity for continuous professional learning. For one year, CORE Instructional Implementation Experts teach site leaders valuable instructional leadership skills so that they may create an environment where teachers are encouraged to learn and improve, and are given the resources and support to do so. CORE also offers ongoing professional learning opportunities through its Academic Leader Institute and sponsored conferences and workshops.

CORE’s Academic Leader Institute: This Institute is designed to equip district and site administrators, instructional coaches, and leadership teams with an understanding of the issues facing leadership around effective program implementation and alignment to the Common Core and other State Standards. During this 3-day Institute, participants practice with resources used to analyze data, observe classroom teaching, monitor implementation over time, and plan intervention with teachers and students. The Institute also includes research readings that focus on implementation and leadership. Learn more about the CORE Academic Leader Institute, including the Institute schedule and participant outcomes, here.

CORE-Sponsored National Conferences and Workshops: CORE leadership development and professional learning continues at these events throughout the year, where CORE-trained leaders and coaches meet with their peers to work together and learn from one another. Participants can expect to walk away with an even greater capacity to lead their teams and improve academic achievement for all students.
