Coaching Classroom Ecosystems: A District Perspective (Virtual)

3-Day Virtual Series begins January 11, 2023 |  9:00 a.m.–12:00 p.m. 

This 3-part session is designed to assist district teams in creating a system-wide coaching framework that supports student-centered learning environments, including classroom management, student behavior, and classroom culture. Teams will have time to explore, develop, and initiate a process of: 

  • Supporting learning environment standards
  • Collecting classroom observation data
  • Utilizing coaching conversations


Advancing Educational Leadership

Experience Advancing Educational Leadership (AEL) training developed by the Texas Education Agency (TEA).  As of July 2015, it replaces Instructional Leadership Development (ILD). Either AEL or ILD serve as a  requisite for the commissioner’s recommended teacher appraisal system. In addition, it will continue to be a requisite to appraise teachers under the implementation of the new Texas Teacher Evaluation and Support System (T-TESS).


The goals of AEL training include the following:

  • to create a positive school culture using team building, effective conferencing and conflict resolution skills;
  • to establish and sustain a campus mission and vision through goal setting and effective communication; to develop others through coaching, mentoring, conferencing, team building and conflict resolution;
  • to examine the leader’s role in improving instruction by connecting curriculum, instruction, and assessments to student outcomes; and
  • to collect and use multiple sources of data to create a positive school environment of learning and high achievement.
