VCS Impact Coaching Program

Volusia County's Coaching Program Mission Statement:

To serve school-based coaches and teachers by providing meaningful support through positive, collaborative, and encouraging interactions.

The goal of VCS's Instructional Coaching Program is to accelerate the development of teacher effectiveness, improve teacher retention, build teacher leadership, increase student learning, and support equitable outcomes for every learner.

The district coaching team provides monthly professional learning and in-field coaching.

The In-field Coaching Cycle is amongst the most powerful work we do in VCS.

The Coaching Cycle:

  • Provides systematic alignment of processes for coach growth and development
  • Focuses on continual improvement
  • Provides job embedded, 1:1 feedback and support that research shows is most effective in impacting practice.
  • Structures processes that can be adapted to include evaluation and/or supervision of coaches
