Curriculum, Instructions & Assessment
  • TAP: The System for Teacher and Student Advancement
    TAP was launched in 1999 as a comprehensive educator effectiveness model that restructures and revitalizes the teaching profession by providing teachers with powerful opportunities for career advancement, ongoing professional development, a fair evaluation system and performance-based compensation.

     

     

     

     

  • ENVoY
    ENVoY is an Educational Non-Verbal Yardstick that was created by Michael Grinder and brought to our district by A & J Educational Consulting.

     

    Our district was drawn to the ENVoY program because the data showed us an opportunity to increase instructional time by at least 20%, a way to increase teachers' strategies for classroom management and the monthly coaching support that came with it.
