Dr. Wallis says at no additional cost, this will allow all campuses to have master teachers, mentor teachers, and professional development specialists.
BISD030413tap_TW-5.mp3Dr. Wallis comments on what these positions will stop doing.
Wallis says the educators will be renamed instructional coaches.
BISD030413tap_TW-4.mp3Dr. Wallis provides a general job description.
Starting next year there will be two coaches at each elementary, three at each middle school, and four at each high school.
The transition affects 30 teachers who will have jobs with the district next year but not necessarily in the positions they have this year.
