“Changing the conversation to engaged student learning instead of teaching is a powerful thing.”-- WANDA SHELTON, DIRECTOR OF SCHOOLS, LINCOLN COUNTY, TENN., DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION    

The Closing the Gap Professional Development Toolkit provides educators with a curricular plan for using educational data to strengthen instructional practice and improve student achievement. The Toolkit offers a cadre of professional development resources designed for district and school leaders to facilitate their training of other district and school leaders. It can be implemented as a district, school, team or individual initiative with customization for each type of professional development.
