Focus Walks Foster Professional Growth in Huntington

"Focus Walks" are successfully helping the Huntington Union Free School District collect data, analyze educator needs, and drive professional development offerings, supported by a Strengthening Teacher and Leader Effectiveness ("STLE") grant. The New York State Education Department currently supports 181 school districts through individual and BOCES-led consortia grants. In total, $72 million will be provided to support grantees in high needs districts that are utilizing a comprehensive systems approach to recruitment, development, support, retention and equitable distribution of effective teachers and school leaders as part of their implementation of their teacher and leader evaluation plan.
