Babette Duty, Assistant Superintendent, Covington County School District

In school year 18-19, Bailey Education Group partnered with the CCSD to work with teachers in a coaching role to improve student achievement.  I believe the single most important part of Bailey’s work for our teachers was the feedback.  Bailey used feedback as a process rather than an outcome.  Because the work reports were timely and specific to each classroom’s needs, teachers new quickly where the holes were in instruction and what the strategy was to plug those holes.  The end result was all of our schools grew students, with all but one school moving up at least one level on the accountability model.
