The Texas Instructional Leadership (TIL) program is a suite of trainings intended for campus and district leaders to grow concrete instructional leadership skills to foster continuous improvement in their organizations. The goal of TIL is to support campus and district leaders to build the capacity of the educators they manage. TIL training supports leaders in the area of observation and feedback, student culture, and data driven instruction.
Texas Instruction Leadership (TIL) trainings are aligned with many of the best practices described in the Effective Schools Framework (ESF), and Region 13/ESC 13 is among the approved vendors for schools seeking a capacity builder to support the execution of a campus improvement plan. TIL is ideal for campus and district leaders who want to increase overall student achievement and close educational gaps in their organization.
There are three components to each TIL training program that include face-to-face workshops, on-site implementation support, and one-on-one coaching. Trained and certified Region 13/ESC 13 staff will deliver the face-to-face training component for campus and district leaders. Following the face-to-face professional development, trainers will walk alongside participants and observe as they put practice into action on their campus and in their district. Principal Supervisors will receive one-on-one coaching from trainers on how to best guide principals towards successfully strengthening and implementing their new skills for sustainable change.
Education Service Center (ESC) 13 will be offering Action Coaching, Data Driven Instruction, School Culture, and LessonPlanning and Formative Assessment trainings for campuses and districts looking to increase student achievement overall, and close gaps between student sub-groups. Texas Instructional Leadership trainings have a face to face professional development component. Campuses and districts that choose to participate in a training will be part of a cohort of campuses that will meet together learn instructional leadership best practices, and have an opportunity to practice their new skills together in a low stakes environment.
