NorthStar first facilitated the creation of the KBAS Teaching Excellence rubric, creating a common bar for excellent teaching across the region.
NorthStar then worked with the KIPP Bay Area Talent Team to develop and launch an instructional coaching pilot. The pilot included:
An instructional coaching process
An instructional coaching toolkit
A kickoff PD
As part of the pilot, NorthStar also worked with the KIPP Bay Area Talent Team to:
Align existing talent practices to the new Teaching Excellence Rubric
Capture video for training principals and other school leaders in the use of the Teaching Excellence Rubric
Put in place processes for gathering feedback on the pilot in preparation for scaling.
The toolkit included a set of guiding principles, an operations excellence rubric, operations development arcs, exemplar coaching videos, and templates for development plans, skip level meetings, and implementation plans.
