School Improvement Services

Hamilton County ESC’s Center for Urban Educational Services (CUES), specializes in urban education professional development. School improvement is a multi-dimensional process. It involves taking a system-wide approach to overcome the challenges urban education faces. We help to strategically align your resources with your goals and vision.

School Improvement Coaching/Consulting

We have coaches and consultants who work in schools and classrooms on a part-time or full-time embedded basis. That means they work side-by-side with teachers and administrators, offering resources, co-planning and co-teaching, feedback, or whatever meets a school’s particular needs. Our coaches work with content-area teachers on curriculum and instruction. We help implement school-wide initiatives, from literacy across the curriculum to positive behavior intervention programs and more.

After School: Extended Day/Extended Year

We provide academic structure for extended day and extended year programs. We partner with you to focus on the instructional components for your program.

Federal Programs Consulting

Federal Title services can be a challenging items to manage fiscally. We can help. We consult with districts to create Title budgets and expenditure reports.

  • Data Collection & Review
  • Implementation Plan
  • Knowledge Base

  • Evaluation
