Instructional Coaching Program

IC Collage


The Instructional Coaching Program provides instructional coaching support to every school across the Lansing School District. Instructional Coaches have been trained through Jim Knight’s Instructional Coaching Group in Impact Cycle coaching, Better Conversations, and G.R.OW.T.H. coaching. In addition, Instructional Coaches have engaged in a wide-variety of training related to literacy, Project Based Learning, college and career readiness, classroom management, virtual instruction, and Social-Emotional Learning.

Program Goals

  • Increase teacher supports in high-need instructional areas as identified by district data trends (literacy, Project Based Learning, STEM, English Learners, college & career readiness).
  • Improve differentiated instructional practices to meet the needs of individual students.
