The ARSI Resource Collaborative Coordinators, District Liaisons, and Regional Teacher Partners: Support Structures for Teacher Leadership
Inverness Research Associates
The mission of the Appalachian Rural Systemic Initiative (ARSI) was to build a long-term capacity that would improve the educational structures of the rural communities it served. The major strategy ARSI used to create improvement communities across Appalachia was to identify, embrace and educate individual teachers, who became ARSI Teacher Partners in the target districts. This report provides snapshots of three important support structures or roles designed to support the Teacher Partners. First, this report describes the ARSI Resource Collaborative Coordinators (RCCs); second, the ARSI District Liaisons (DLs); and finally, the ARSI Regional Teacher Partners (RTPs). This report discusses how these roles contributed to leadership at the regional and school system levels, supporting, connecting and developing the Teacher Partners. And it also discusses how the people who served in these roles developed their own knowledge, skills, and ability to provide "leadership for leadership." (Contains 2 footnotes.)
