2017-2018 Core Coaching Network

The Alameda County Core Learning Department invites you to participate in our Core Coaching Network! This powerful forum will equip you with the tools you need to implement the Common Core State Standards and Next Generations Science Standards in a meaningful way. The network is specifically designed for both district-level and site-level instructional leaders (principals, teacher-leaders, coaches) who are charged with supporting implementation plans and strategies aligned with state standards and beyond.

In the Core Coaching Network, you will:

  • Learn and be able to share best leadership practices for adult learning, as well as for facilitating school-wide and/or district-wide transformation

  • Develop a strong community through shared expertise and time to network with neighboring districts

  • Deepen your content expertise and CCSS/NGSS implementation readiness

  • Advance your design and delivery of CCSS/NGSS aligned curriculum, instruction, and professional development and coaching, including the implementation of cutting-edge technology tools

  • Strengthen your systems thinking and strategic planning practices
