Services Tailored for your District
How we serve your district
ESD 112 English Language Arts (ELA) Coordinators work throughout the region with school districts to assist in the implementation of the Washington State Learning Standards for English Language Arts. Our staff can provide job-embedded learning that engages teachers in constructive teaming to improve teaching practices and student learning or formalized professional development training.
These professional development opportunities can be designed to be one-time, short term training or repeated site visits. They are designed to meet the needs of your building or district. The support can be provided to teacher teams, full teaching staff, PLCs or other leadership teams.
Together, we can increase student learning by:
- Developing a system with strong regional support
- Building and maintaining leadership capacity
- Providing consistent, high-quality professional learning to improve teachers’ pedagogical skills
Customized K-4 Literacy Training
The ESD 112 English Language Arts Literacy Program provides a variety of literacy services to our partnering school districts. From many professional learning opportunities to very customized and tailored coaching, we can provide a multitude of services that equip districts with their literacy curriculum needs. Our district or site based teams will complete a review of your curriculum, assessment, instruction, and intervention components of your reading system. This process uses evidence-based practice, district data, and a tiered intervention approach, and will provide evidence of strengths and opportunities for growth. Our emphasis on analysis and prioritization provides you with tools for future action planning as you continue to grow your program.
