        Campus-based initiatives


        September – May

        New teachers will meet at least twice a month with their departments or those teaching in a similar content area in order to plan. This should allow the teacher to:

        • Teach to the rigorous standards expected at TCC South;
        • Evaluate the impact of instruction on student performance;
        • Use student and classroom achievement data for planning and curriculum;
        • Design instruction to meet specific learning needs; and
        • Contribute to a positive school culture.


        January – May

        Once every three weeks—for a total of six observations—new teachers will be partnered with experienced teachers or staff leaders to observe peers and discuss best practices and strategies for the classroom.
