Continuous Improvement

Four step process in a continuous improvement effort in education

Workouts for Continuous Improvement

The goal of Impact Florida’s Workouts is to help teams strengthen their continuous improvement muscles by making these practices easier to pick up and implement in any education leadership role, from instructional coaches in a Professional Learning Community to Chief Academic Officers with their teams. The workouts take 90 minutes or less to complete, and are designed to stand alone or work as an iterative process from beginning to end of an implementation effort. The workouts are self-facilitated activities that help guide teams to strengthen their use of data and build a culture of continuous improvement in Florida schools.
