Shaping a student’s education begins with a plan. What subjects will be taught? How will teachers communicate concepts and structure lessons? What measures will demonstrate that students have learned? Instructional coordinators oversee the answers to these questions, as they plan school curriculum and teaching standards. School boards, states, and federal regulations establish educational plans and teaching techniques for schools to put into practice. Instructional coordinators lead the effort to turn those plans into reality for each teacher, in every classroom. Instructional coordinators visit schools in their district to teach classes, observe teachers, and meet with principals to assess the effectiveness of curriculum. They train teachers on new methods, such as incorporating technology into lesson planning. When a district receives new standards, instructional coordinators ensure that teachers understand the new standards and how to achieve them. Some specialize in particular grade levels or subjects, special education, or English Language Learner programs. Instructional coordinators generally work full time, year-round. They spend most of their time in offices, and may do site visits. Most work in K-12 schools, colleges, government, and educational support services. Instructional coordinators need a master’s degree, usually in curriculum and instruction or education, along with several years of related work experience, such as teaching or school administration. Coordinators in public schools may need a state-issued license, such as a teaching license or an education administrator license.
