Campus Turnaround and Long-Term Transformation

In 2014, Kostoryz Elementary School in the Corpus Christi Independent School District (ISD) was one of the lowest-performing schools in the state of Texas. Student achievement scores were below 50% across all content areas and grade levels, and discipline referrals were growing rapidly. Facing performance problems in almost all reported student groups — including Hispanic, Black, White, Special Education, Economically Disadvanted, and English language learners — the school was labeled "Improvement Required" by the state.

Additionally, school staff across the board reported a discouraging and frustrating school culture. As a result, Kostoryz struggled with job satisfaction and attrition, having lost a devastating 70% of its teachers the year before expanding its partnership with engage2learn (e2L). 

Through evidence- and competency-based coaching from e2L, the school embarked on an improvement plan focused on making a fundamental culture shift in three phases. Read to full case study to see the transformative, long-term impact of e2L's job-embedded coaching on job satisfaction and teacher retention, student achievement, and school culture!
