What does an Instructional Coordinator do?

Instructional coordinators evaluate and adjust their curriculum based on national standards, teacher interviews, and student needs. They may integrate technology into traditional classroom subjects, find a way to bring art education into the curriculum, or suggest interactive learning initiatives, including a parent-child book club. They are also responsible for ensuring that teachers are properly trained in implementing any new curriculum and apprise teachers of changes in state standards in teaching requirements.

Instructional coordinators have a deep commitment to education and a desire to persistently search for the newest teaching techniques, whether through continuing education, collaborative conferences, or observation. They evaluate the effectiveness of curriculum and teaching techniques established by school boards, states, and federal regulations and recommend curriculum changes based upon their research. They may conduct training for teachers related to technology and may specialize in particular grade levels or subjects. Instructional coordinators need a master's degree in education or curriculum and instruction.
