School Improvement


The goal of the Department of School Improvement is to design and implement a coherent and sustained system of support and process for improvement for the Fannin County School System.

Fannin County Schools use a continuous improvement approach to planning for improvement through the use of aligned and connected improvement plans for each school and the district. This planning model is based on the Plan, Do, Check, Act approach to planning for continuous improvement. The continuous improvement plan for each school serves as both the short and long range planning framework for that site. The continuous improvement plan acts as an umbrella for all improvement efforts for the school. Each continuous improvement plan is aligned around the three strategic objectives of the school system:

 Attaining High Student Achievement & Success

Developing Organizational Effectiveness

Ensuring Stakeholder Support and Satisfaction


Instructional Coaches

The goal of coaching in the Fannin County School System is to support teachers as they improve their content knowledge and understanding of what is effective instruction and how children learn. In order to maximize the effectiveness of this initiative coaches will work directly with teachers in the classroom, analyze teachers' needs, observe classes, collaborate on interventions, and build a network for change resulting in improving student achievement.
