Common Core State Standards - How Much Do Principals Work

331 views

Published on

With the Common Core State Standards upon us it is as important as ever that school principals maximize all the time available to them to visit classrooms and give their teachers feedback.

Principals average nearly 60 hours per week, but very little of that time is spent in classrooms. What little time is spent in classrooms rarely results in useful feedback. One recent study found that walk throughs without feedback has a negative impact on student achievement.

This new iPad app from Think Strategy, LLC aims to reduce the time principals spend making observations leaving them more time to give useful feedback.
