Troup County School System (TCSS) is currently working with Dr. Bill Daggett and the International Center for Educational Leadership (ICLE).
Dr. Daggett is the Founder and Chairman of ICLE and he and his team has assisted hundreds of school systems in a number of states with improvement efforts. He inspires audiences to embrace what is best about our education system and make necessary changes to meet the needs of all students in the 21st century.
In August 2015, Dr. Daggett visited Troup County and spoke to the entire TCSS employee base, business partners and community leaders. His philosophy of meeting all student needs through a variety of ways resonated with the audience.
Now, TCSS is using Dr. Daggett and ICLE's expertise. The organization (ICLE) has identified the 25 most rapidly improving elementary, middle and high schools in the country. They are currently conducting an assessment review of TCSS using:
- School Observations
- Classroom Observations
- Gauging Student Engagement
- Surveys for Employees, Students and Parents
- Lexile Study of Reading Demands in Troup County - Personal Use and Business Reading Materials
Upon return of the assessment, TCSS will use the recommendations to make necessary changes to improve school climate, increase student engagement, and continuous school improvement
