It is for a Blended Learning Instructional Coach and Coordinator at a School in Denver Public Schools, but I think it is a good description for a lot of other roles as well.

Are other folks creating these kinds of roles in their schools/districts?

  1. Interesting! There are a lot of similarities between this job description and the Differentiated Roles application my school is submitting. We’re hoping for two .5 FTE teachers to support personalized learning next year (one supporting ECE-2, the other supporting 3-5). The beauty of DR is the coaches would keep one foot in the classroom, teaching .5 FTE and staying current on best practices and new tech/programs. I think more and more schools are recognizing the need to build capacity and provide support from within the building.

  4. We are hoping to create this kind of position as well. I think this one is really well articulated and I love that it addresses both the coaching and coordinating pieces. I think it is important to consider all the things that go into vision, philosophy, implementation/rollout, and instruction. Without one running smoothly it jeopardizes the others working effectively and adds additional burdens to the teachers doing the work, which with their already overflowing plates means less likelihood of things being sustainable.
