Implementor Spotlight – Grainger County
Grainger County Schools leadership is busy planting seeds that will lead to growth within schools and facilitate the best possible support for their students, teachers, families, and community. Key to this shift in direction was identifying leaders ready and willing to make significant changes in the district and coordinate efforts to align RTI2-A + RTI2-B.
Ginny McElhaney and Maura Bishop are serving as Co-District Coordinators, working with the members of their district leadership team to bring about meaningful change in Grainger County Schools. Their District Leadership, while conducting the District Capacity Assessment—Tennessee, determined that they needed two District Coordinators who could share in this meaningful work. As Co-District Coordinators, Maura and Ginny collaborate to assist school leaders in developing aligned frameworks in Grainger County. They actively engage with the Tennessee Tiered Supports Center to collaboratively plan district-level meetings, school-level learning sessions, and district-wide professional development that promotes sustainability and capacity building among all key collaborators.
