Impact Florida is focused on improving the quality of classroom instruction. We work toward this goal by supporting educational leaders and teachers with the knowledge and tools they need to ensure that great teaching is consistently in place. We do this in the following ways:
Why We Do It
We do the work we do because we believe that all students deserve education leaders who:
- Direct resources and action toward supports that drive improvements in student learning
- Use data effectively to understand and respond to gaps in student learning
- Adopt and implement high-quality aligned curricular materials
- Deliver rigorous lessons that are aligned to grade-level expectations
Together, we can help education leaders realize that we are all advocates, and we all must own the impact our decisions have on Florida’s students.
Florida’s educational achievements are on the rise, but the state still has a long way to go in providing quality instruction to all students in all schools. A Vision for Great Teaching in Florida addresses how the status-quo is contributing to the stunting of student achievement and opportunity, and what research points to for solutions.
Districts for Impact is an exciting new initiative focused 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.
Participants 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 papers called Cases for Impact.
