The Office of School Improvement provides a statewide system of support and process for school improvement. Programs include the Division of School and District Effectiveness, Division of Teacher and Leader Effectiveness, and Federal Programs/Title I and Outreach Programs.
School and District Effectiveness
The work of the
Division of School and District Effectiveness is to engage with and support
districts and schools in their improvement efforts, providing helpful tools,

such as the Regional Education Service Agencies (RESAs), the Georgia Learning
Resources System (GLRS), and colleges and universities to provide district and
