Series of Institutes to Become a
Get Focused...Stay Focused!® Curriculum and Technical Support Advisor

As we start to work with larger school districts, the ideal way to ensure success and institutionalization over the long haul is a GFSF Program and Curriculum Specialist on staff who will work with the schools in the district.  The following PD plan is the gold standard for bringing these professionals on board, so they can help their schools implement with fidelity. 

Plus, the GFSF nonprofit goal is to fund and develop these specialists throughout the state.  This provides the opportunity for that to take place in a comprehensive fashion.
