What outcomes do e2L partners experience as a result of coaching?

We are passionate about ensuring that our coaching leads to actual improved outcomes for our partner districts. Therefore, we've partnered with well-respected research firm LXD Research to independently validate the student achievement gains and improved teacher retention rates that our partner districts are experiencing.

School/District Leadership Coaching

Most principals and district leaders have not been given a clear roadmap for how to integrate effective teacher support systems into their busy schedules. e2L coaches school- and district-level leaders to help them develop the skills and systems that transform school culture, increase teacher retention, and ultimately improve student outcomes.

Teacher Coaching

Regardless of your area of focus – school improvement, reading, math, ELL, SpEd, or any other initiative e2L helps upskill the talent of your teachers, regardless of their level of experience, to ensure that they feel more confident in and effective at meeting the diverse needs of students. After all, helping teachers feel supported is key to creating a teaching and learning environment in which teachers want to stay.

Non-Instructional Staff & Leadership Coaching

Over the past several years, more and more districts have seen the value of providing coaching and guidance to their non-instructional staff because, ultimately, every department impacts the lives of students in your district. Supporting the staff across facilities, transportation, HR, technology, and other departments has been a major contributor to school- and district-wide transformation for our partners.
