Educational Coherence


For some students, the school day has become very complex—with specialists of several types, intervention periods, afterschool homework help, and tutors augmenting classroom instruction. All these additional supports have highlighted the need for leaders to think about and plan for coherent learning experiences. Educational coherence is an approach of intentionally bringing instructional systems, programs, and educators together for curriculum, programming, and staffing alignment to advance student learning and academic achievement and outcomes. This toolkit includes resources to help leaders and their staff understand how to work toward greater coherence.
