Instructional Coaches

USD 345 supports instruction and innovation through the personalized support of instructional coaches in every building. Instructional coaches partner with teachers to help them improve teaching and learning so students are more successful. All of our instructional coaches are trained in the Impact Cycle coaching model, developed by Dr. Jim Knight from the University of Kansas. Through the Impact Cycle, district coaches collaborate with teachers to identify professional goals and select teaching strategies that will help teachers meet their goals.
