Definition of Instructional Supervision


     Effective Instructional Supervision involves raising student achievement and creating valuable educational opportunities for students.  This can be achieved by the supervisor clearly defining goals for the teachers and facilitating opportunities for the teachers to learn about local, state, and federal requirements.  A successful supervisor would also provide support to teachers through not only workshops, but also by being available to the teachers and fostering growth by completing walkthroughs and clinical supervisions.  Furthermore, an instructional supervisor would work with parents and teachers to keep current on the community’s needs in order to help provide students with a meaningful educational experience that will benefit them in various career paths.  Instructional supervisors are integral to every school’s attainment of support, teacher success, and student achievement.
