Teacher Development

 

We accelerate student success by helping teachers and school leaders effectively implement evidence-based practices to meet the needs of all your students.

 

Great Teachers Make A Difference

The Center for Student Achievement Solutions is committed to helping classroom teachers prevent and close equity gaps.  We equip teachers with the skills they will need to implement evidence-based practices to impact student performance.  The more teachers learn, the better equipped they are to improve the outcomes for all students.

What We Do

Our job-embedded professional development approach encourages teachers to learn, practice, master, and reflect on the implementation of evidence-based practices. The Center for Student Achievement Solutions’ comprehensive, evidence-based approach for creating inclusive and equitable classrooms is built on the premise that all students learn differently.

We Walk The Talk

Our staff of experienced, highly qualified professionals serves as a valuable resource for educators and learners on a range of content related to teacher effectiveness, and improving the outcomes for all students.

Implementation Is A Process, Not A Singular Event.

“Professional development provides teachers with a description of the content and skill; after this event, only 10% can transfer it to their practice; however, when combined with coaching through the implementation process, 95% can transfer the skill (Joyce and Flowers, 1995).”

Transform Classrooms And, Prepare Students For Success

We use ongoing, job-embedded professional development to provide research and evidence-based practices that teachers can successfully implement the next day. The Center for Student Achievement Solutions program strengthens educators’ ability to:
