Grundy TLC Application


Student Achievement Coordinators

Student Achievement Coordinators at the K-4 and 5-12 levels lead in the collection, validation, analysis, and presentation of student assessment data. This gives us insight into what our students need to think critically and creatively to solve problems and perform at a higher level. These individuals work with departments and collaborate with administration in the planning and facilitation of professional development aligned with district data designed to facilitate instructional changes. They also provide teachers with the data needed for the continued implementation of  MTSS, core area instruction, and research-based strategies to improve achievement.


Lead Teachers

Lead Teachers work to facilitate the delivery of the trainings to help satisfy these goals and partner with teachers to increase student achievement.


Mentor Teachers

Another level of support are the Mentor Teachers who provide specific feedback and support to new staff that are either new to the profession or new to the district.


Building Improvement Team

In addition, Building Improvement Team research specialized talents model and provide ways to help achieve these goals.
