Individual School Support

Individual School Support


Individual School Support, or ISS, is a program designed for those schools and institutions in need of specific individualized support. ISS is designed to meet the specific needs of an educational organization—i.e., your school. ISS workshops are typically five sessions. They are focused, designed to introduce particular pedagogies and/or respond to specific challenges.

ISS workshops offer a personalized approach to professional development and teacher training with a dual focus on good practices and methodologies as well as community building and support.
