ESD’s Central Oregon Regional Program (CORP) staff participates in coaching training in an effort to enhance their skills in working with school teams. They are learning ways to blend their consultation skills with coaching skills to increase the implementation of effective strategies/interventions for students. They meet with an Instructional Coach who guides their continued learning. The next step in the process is to partner with a colleague, shadow each other in the field, and then dialogue for the purpose of gaining insight into practices. In addition, a coaching leadership cohort was formed this year, for the purpose of supporting staff in the development of coaching skills and to continue to nurture conversations regarding professional practice.
