What is an Instructional Facilitator?

Instructional Facilitators support the school improvement by addressing two fundamental issues: 1) building strategic capacity at the school building level, and 2) helping schools focus on the essential business of schools building and managing effective instructional programs. The role of the No Child Left Behind facilitator is to support the implementation of best practice which will result in better performance. Working as a part of the leadership team with the building principal, instructional facilitators are key in continuous instructional improvement. Specific responsibilities of the facilitator include

1. Building Strategic Capacity

  • facilitate academic support team or school improvement planning team
  • monitor action plan/school improvement plan
  • monitor compliance with federal and state regulations
  • prepare and submit No Child Left Behind forms, reports, and documentation
  • serve as resource for personnel new to school or system
  • support student transitions: school to school and grade to grade
  • plan and deliver professional development
  • plan and implement strategies to involve parents

2. Helping Schools Focus on Building and Supporting Effective Instructional Program

  • monitor identification of low performing students and support extra efforts for these students
  • guide teachers in changing instructional strategies to support student needs and develop STAR document to provide intervention
  • coordinate efforts in curriculum implementation
  • seek out and provide instructional resources and curricular assistance for classroom instruction
  • research, identify, and model best practices
  • encourage the integration of technology in daily instruction
  • monitor effectiveness of classroom instruction, management, environment, and interventions

Federal FREE website


More than thirty Federal agencies formed a working group in 1997 to make hundreds of federally supported teaching and learning resources easier to find. The result of that work is the Federal Resources for Educational Excellence (FREE) website. The following are recent additions in the areas of science, mathematics, and technology:


* Space Food and Nutrition Educator Guide explores looks at the history of preparing and packaging foods that taste good, provide necessary nutrients, and travel well in space. (National Aeronautics and Space Administration)


* Computing Life looks at ways physicists, biologists, and artists are harnessing the power of computers to advance our understanding of biology and human health. Learn how computers are used to simulate the spread of flu through a school, the movement of cells in our bodies, and the beating of a heart. Find out how computers help in the search for gene variations that could lead to disease. (National Institutes of Health)


* Suited for Spacewalking Educator Guide examines the technology behind space suits. Students learn about the environment of space, the history of spacewalking, NASA's current space suit, future space suits, and work that astronauts do during spacewalks. (National Aeronautics and Space Administration)


* Voyages Through Time is a year-long integrated science curriculum for 9th or 10th grade based on the theme of evolution. It is presented in six modules: cosmic evolution, planetary evolution, origin of life, evolution of Life, hominid evolution, and evolution of technology. Individual modules can be used in discipline-based science courses such as biology, earth science, geology, or astronomy. (Learning in Motion, National Science Foundation)
