Student-Centered Coaching introduces a unique way of looking at and delivering school-based coaching that puts the needs of students’ front-and-center. By focusing coaching on specific goals for student learning, rather than on changing or fixing teachers, coaches partner with teachers to build capacity and navigate directly towards a measurable impact and increased student achievement.
