Instructional Transformation

As a partner in the Center on School Turnaround, ADI was integral to the creation and publication of Four Domains for Rapid School Improvement and developed training for principals on the domain of instructional transformation.

Transformation Academy

The Transformation Academy guides principals and their A-Teams (teachers) in transforming their instructional system.  ADI is currently assisting Mississippi and Alabama in transforming instruction in their states.

ADI is assisting the Puerto Rico Department of Education in implementing strategies drawn from the Four Domains. 

Participant Reviews

The “A‐team” has created a PLC that is a true “change engine” in how our school now approaches the instructional processes as we meet the needs of our students.

Michael Turner
Principal, Pinson Valley HS

The Transformation Academy has forced me to be more intentional on being in classes at least 50% of the time. It also allowed me to build capacity in other building leaders by delegating responsibilities that released me to be in classrooms more often.

Angela Harris
Principal, Minor Community

It has helped me get more teachers on board and to step up as leaders to assist and to share. This has allowed us to move forward in our improvement plan faster and a lot smoother.

Reta Hayes
Principal, Lipscomb Elementary

The Transformation Academy has helped me to refocus my daily activities and prioritize those instructional tasks that are change makers.

Paula Allen
Principal, Brookville ES

My participation in the Transformation Academy has provided me with the necessary tools to ensure my school stays focused on what matters most: quality instruction. As a first year principal, this has been a powerful journey.

Marvin Carter II
Principal, Rudd Middle School

The most important thing I’ve learned from the Transformation Academy is that you must be proactive and set your schedule ahead of time to include purposeful classroom visits. You must be proactive in implementing programs in a systematic, collaborative, and consistent manner.

Susan Remick
Principal, Fultondale ES

Principals are more aware of how they spend their time each day, and the reflection has resulted in an increased focus on instruction. We adapted a lesson template at the end of last year. Session 2 content affirmed our focus on planning for instruction.
