Instructional Coaches

Instructional coaches build capacity throughout the district, equip teachers to improve student achievement, and help encourage continuous improvement for students and faculty.

  • More than one-third of new teachers leave the profession in the first three years (Shaw &. Newton, 2014)
  • 68 percent of new teachers have expressed their preparation programs had placed too much emphasis on theory and not enough on classroom-ready skills. (William Penn Foundation, 2018
  • On average, it costs more than $20,000 to hire a new teacher in an urban school district. (Learning Policy Institute, 2017)
  • Nearly two-thirds of American teachers feel undervalued. (trustEd, 2018)

Bulloch County Schools' instructional coaches support teachers as they assess where they are as educators, plan for how to grow their skills, and put effective practices in action to best benefit their students, their school, and their career as educators.

These are the roles of our school district's instructional coaches as they serve school faculty to help improve leadership capacity and student achievement:

  • Mentor
  • Resource Provider
  • Teacher Supporter
  • Learning Facilitator
