MAKING A DIFFERENCE

Educators who implement the ABPC strategies report improved teaching, increased student engagement in high-level learning, higher graduation rates, and increased test scores.

WHO WE ARE

The Alabama Best Practices Center (ABPC), in partnership with the Alabama State Department of Education (ALSDE), facilitates high-quality, professional learning for four different networks of educators: superintendents (Superintendent Leaders Network), district and school leaders (Key Leaders Network), schools (Powerful Conversations Network), and school-based instructional coaches (Instructional Partners Network). Time for collaboration and continuous learning is valued by many educators as a means to improve their practice in the classroom. ABPC provides valuable, structured time by sharing the most current, research-based best practices, and giving educators the space to learn from other professionals.

WHO WE SERVE

ABPC serves 71 of the state’s 137 districts, including Jefferson County, Huntsville, Mobile, Montgomery, and Tuscaloosa—in all, more than 400,000 of Alabama’s 740,000 students. In the 2014-2015 school year, ABPC facilitated 89 different professional learning sessions. Due its effectiveness, the Alabama State Department of Education (ALSDE) officials use ABPC’s resources at their quarterly regional meetings.
