Leadership Development & Sustainability Services

We work with school and district leaders to develop new skills and create processes that ensure long term sustainability and establish a cycle of continuous improvement for students.

CLI works with district partners to create sustainable organizational processes that continue the trajectory of improvement in schools. Building a teacher’s instructional expertise impacts student learning over the course of a teacher’s career.

Leadership Team Meetings


Review of Progress

By helping educators learn high-impact instructional strategies and nurturing dynamic professional learning communities, CLI builds lasting capacity in teachers and principals over time.

Leadership Team Meetings

Leadership Team Meetings provide a regular opportunity for the school principal, CLI Regional Manager, CLI Professional Developer, and other school-based leadership (literacy coaches, teacher-leaders, etc.) to assess school strengths and areas of need, review student data, set goals, identify success indicators, plan action steps and agree on a time-line for action.

Reviews of Progress

A review of progress is a structured opportunity for literacy coaches, site leaders and district administrators to examine evidence of progress, identify areas of strength and areas for improvement. ROPs occur once per year to serve as a end-of-year review.

Principal Meetings

Participating principals come together three times a year to learn the competencies of effective early literacy leadership. This includes learning to recognize when research based practices are occurring and how to provide actionable feedback for improvement.

Teaching & Coaching Resources

Educators must be equipped with adequate resources and tools to successfully transition to distance learning. CLI's free downloadable resources for teachers and coaches are a helpful roadmap to continue providing impactful instruction for in-person and virtual instruction.
