Fort Vermilion School District leadership team have embarked on a collaborative process to provide systematic and responsive support for their school teams.  This approach focuses on district priorities and supporting school leadership to enhance their skills in those priorities which in turn builds capacity with teachers and results in a greater degree of success for students. Just as schools design and implement processes to support students, districts can set up similar processes to design and implement support for schools. The systematic and responsive processes and structures at the district level provides an excellent platform for monitoring, communicating and deploying the supports provided by districts to schools in achieving their strategic plans and improving student learning.
