Teamwork in Tulsa: District Reshapes Learning to Make the Best Use of People, Time, and Money
Rosenberg, David; Green, Genevieve Quist
Learning Professional, v41 n2 p47-50 Apr 2020
Tulsa Public Schools Superintendent Deborah Gist and her team, along with school-based leaders, have worked with the district's school leaders to implement a comprehensive strategy to improve instructional quality for all students in Tulsa. Grounded in a clear vision for instruction and starting with the introduction of new curricula aligned to college- and career-ready standards, the Tulsa strategy recognizes that to move the needle on "student" learning, schools must change the structural conditions that influence "teachers'" professional learning. Education Resource Strategies (ERS), along with their partners from Leading Educators, have worked closely with leaders and educators in Tulsa Public Schools to implement a new job-embedded professional learning approach grounded in high-quality curriculum. With deliberate and strategic resource shifts, the district is setting up teachers to generate the most impact on student learning.
