Districts for Impact is an initiative focused on sharing and promoting promising instructional leadership practices and structures across school districts. Impact Florida created this program with the goal of connecting districts in a peer-to-peer learning community that catalyzes positive change for students across the state.
Each Districts for Impact Learning Cadre is unique in membership, topical focus, and duration, as well in the supports provided and specific cadre activities. To date, two cadres have been formed with additional ones planned in the future.
Five Conditions Cadre
Between October 2019 and February 2020, our first learning cadre focused on the Five Conditions That Support Great Teaching. Education leaders from five school districts participated in a series of Learning Walks where each school district shared one of its promising practices related to a specific condition, and sought feedback about how to improve.
High-Quality Instructional Materials Cadre
Between February 2020 and March 2021, the High-Quality Instructional Materials Cadre will bring together education leaders from seven districts to participate in a series of convenings and learning walks, as well as receive focused technical assistance as they create and execute a plan to select high-quality instructional materials.
