Instructional Coaches play an important role in supporting our administrators, teachers and instructional support staff through coaching and offering a variety of  professional learning opportunities. Professional learning and coaching are targeted and focused on strengthening instructional strategies that align to California’s rigorous academic standards. The goal of Instructional Coach work is to help teachers facilitate 21st century learning that allows all students a successful path to college and/or career readiness.


Instructional Coaches work with larger grade level teacher teams in a group setting and/or provide individual and small group support in the classroom. They are an invaluable asset to teaching and learning within Rocklin Unified School District.
