Instructional excellence:
Teachers don't grow their practice without high expectations, meaningful goal-setting for student outcomes and the support needed to meet their goals. Targeted instructional analysis and coaching support ensure that demands of state standards and curriculum are being addressed at the appropriate rigor and depth along with actionable feedback to develop every educator.

Collaborative learning:
Sustained improvement will only happen when we invest in building the
skills and knowledge of educators to lead improvement and create an
environment with positive and supportive professional relationships.

Reflective culture:
When all stakeholders—from community, parents and teachers to coaches and school leaders—consistently reflect on their practice together, they build a culture of continuous improvement and collective efficacy.

Collective leadership:
No school improves without a strong principal and district support, but
principals cannot go it alone. The principal's work must be supported by
an effective team of teachers who are supported by strong structures and protocols.

NIET works with each partner to identify needs and priorities and help develop a tailored support plan. NIET's expert trainers and support staff provide ongoing guidance throughout the implementation of the plan, helping to assess data in real time and make adjustments along the way.

Excellent instruction is the foundation for school improvement. NIET helps build a culture of trust and supportive relationships that lead to teacher growth and sustained student learning gains.

NIET has worked with schools just like yours and produced strong student achievement results in schools with significant challenges. We want to partner with you. Let's begin.
