The University of Florida (UF) today joined with Promethean in announcing their collaboration on a peer-coaching program to provide leadership development training to educators of Priority Improvement/Turnaround schools in Colorado.
Promethean and the UF Lastinger Center for Learning, the research-and-development incubator for the university’s College of Education, were approved by the Colorado Department of Education as one of six providers in the state as part of the School Turnaround Leaders Development grant program. Participants will learn and practice coaching skills, grapple with challenges to student achievement, and build their capacities to lead in Priority Improvement/Turnaround Schools.
Enrolled educators are expected to implement what they have learned, and at the end of the school year, will present their findings and improvements to earn a Promethean/UF Turnaround School Leaders Certificate.
