engage2learn Approved as a Texas Education Agency Vetted Improvement Program Provider for Texas Schools
AUSTIN, TX – engage2learn (e2L) is proud to announce that the Texas Education Agency (TEA) has approved e2L’s Coaching Catalyst Program as a Vetted Improvement Program (VIP) that supports all five levers essential for successful school outcomes, enabling e2L to provide Texas school districts the support they need for capacity building, effective instruction, and school improvement within the Effective Schools Framework (ESF). The goal of the ESF is to provide a clear vision and path for districts and schools across the state to follow to ensure an excellent education for all Texas students.
According to the TEA, VIPs are an important resource for Local Education Agencies (LEAs) in seeking to build capacity in priority focus areas identified through the ESF Diagnostic Process. e2L’s Catalyst Coaching Program has been fully vetted and approved to support LEAs in their selection of high-quality contracted services aligned with foundational essential actions within the ESF.
“e2L is excited to fully support the continuous improvement of Texas schools under the ESF grant through TEA,” said Shannon Buerk, Founder and CEO of engage2learn. “Our evidence-based Catalyst Coaching Program has been implemented in districts across the state with proven results of accelerating student learning gains and improving school culture. Since inception 12 years ago, e2L has remained passionately committed to supporting and elevating the neighborhood school so that it is the first choice for every Texas family.”
The ESF program and the support e2L provides as a VIP is instrumental for improving the landscape of public education in the state of Texas. The ESF framework, based on years of educational research of best practices, identifies five levers essential for successful school outcomes: Strong School Leadership and Planning, Strategic Staffing, Positive School Culture, High-Quality Instructional Materials and Assessments, and Effective Instruction. e2L’s Catalyst Coaching Program can now support districts through their school improvement process in all five areas.
