Session Description:


Ensuring that students are prepared to live independent and productive lives is the ultimate goal of all the activities monitored by Thomasville City Schools. In TCS, Instructional Excellence Inventories (IEIs) are completed at each school four times a year to help educators focus on continuous improvement and monitoring. IEIs are designed to help schools analyze and interpret data and seek trends and patterns to determine the impact of classroom instruction on student learning. The inevitable goal of the IEI visit is to improve educational practice.
