Districts For Impact

Districts for Impact

Districts for Impact focuses on sharing and promoting promising instructional leadership practices across districts through a peer-to-peer learning community. Impact Florida, in partnership with FADSS, created the program to help education leaders share and learn about high-impact teaching practices that are bridging the opportunity gap and improving outcomes for all students. Selected Districts will participate in a series of facilitated Learning Walks, synthesize their learnings from those gatherings, and Impact Florida will publish a summary of insights from each district in a series of profiles called Cases for Impact.
