Georgia’s Systems of Continuous Improvement
The Georgia Department of Education’s strategic plan emphasizes transforming the Department into one that provides meaningful support to schools and districts. The Department has developed a common, continuous improvement framework to ensure that these efforts are aligned across all GaDOE divisions, departments, and programs. The Georgia’s Systems of Continuous Improvement framework focuses on the systems and structures (the “what”) that must be in place for sustained improvement in student outcomes. It also utilizes a problem-solving model (the “how”) to provide a clear process for identifying improvement needs, planning for improvement, and implementing, monitoring, and evaluating the improvement efforts.
Opportunities for Title II, Part A support are woven throughout Georgia’s Systems of Continuous Improvement. A Coherent Instructional System can be supported by Title II, Part A to provide ALL teachers and school leaders with opportunities to broaden and deepen their understanding and practice of effective instructional strategies. Title II, Part A also provides the means for schools and LEAs to develop their Professional Capacity through attracting, placing, and supporting effective educators. Research indicates Effective Leadership is critical to the success of our schools and Title II, Part A can provide the necessary support for the development of effective leaders through professional learning and mentorship. These opportunities go toward supporting and developing the whole child and providing the access for low income students and families to effective teachers and leaders.
