Idaho Building Capacity

Malika teaching PD to faculty/staff

Idaho Building Capacity is a highly collaborative initiative that partners master teachers with a school’s leadership team to assist school leaders to make data-driven decisions. IBC provides schools with tools such as the Educational Effectiveness Survey, a self-evaluation tool which provides a framework for school leaders to understand and make changes to improve their school culture and advance student achievement. IBC focuses on the individual needs and challenges of each individual site being served.

Idaho Building Capacity regularly engages recently retired, highly distinguished educators who assist school and district leaders as they facilitate the work of improvement in Idaho’s eligible schools and districts. In collaboration with school and district staff, and assigned Capacity Builder (CB) works beside the leadership team in assessing the school’s needs, setting goals, implementing plans, and measuring improvement in English language arts, mathematics, and graduation rates.

If your school is eligible, please contact me or another consultant. Let’s work together!
