CMCSS contacted Instructional Excellence Partners to help with redesigning our Instructional Technology Department supports through re-visioning the program and implementing an improved coaching model. Between individual coaching sessions with the new Instructional Technology Coordinator, thought partnering with district leaders, training with technology integration coaches, and district professional learning sessions, Howard and his team were outstanding! Between their research-based knowledge, practical expertise, and applicable experiences, we could not be more pleased with the results.

Every organization goes through periods of complacency. Howard gave us the ability to reflect and identify our school system’s strengths and weaknesses through evidenced based data and various group discussions. Our task was to rejuvenate our vision for digital teaching and learning and increase enthusiasm among our teachers. With grant funding, we began our trek on this mission and contracted Dr. Pitler to be our guide. He delivered the expertise we expected and aligned every aspect of the work to the grant specifications. His demeanor and professionalism is excellent. He was prompt and on target with explicit direction. We are on our way to complete the second phase of our journey because of the success we had during the planning stage. Ashe County Schools highly recommends Howard to assist you in your educational needs.
