The entire Northern Tioga School District utilizes the Learning Focused professional development framework to transform teaching and boost student performance. The framework is broken down into three stages:

Stage 1 Stage 2 Stage 3
High Performance Rigorous Instruction Accelerated-Learning
By connecting standards to instruction, the first stage provides a path to effective teaching and high-performing classrooms. In the second stage, teachers focus on rigor, learning activities, grade-level assignments, and assessments. Catch kids up and help them perform at grade level. The third stage is all about ensuring students are successful, so they enjoy a whole year’s worth of growth.
