Growth Not Gotcha: Creating a Culture of Coaching

By leveraging innovative systems and cutting-edge technologies, Calcasieu Parish School Board (CPSB) has successfully accelerated its pursuit of instructional excellence. Check out how the 66-school district continues to achieve consistent instructional improvement across its schools.


Calcasieu Parish School Board is the fifth largest school district in Louisiana with 66 schools.

Leading the academic charge for CPSB is Superintendent Dr. Shannon LaFargue, whose mission is to empower CPSB staff to create world-class learning environments. By leveraging systems thinking, a global mindset, continuous improvement, and a collaborative approach, Dr. Lafargue and CPSB are on the cutting edge of innovation.


Deliver consistent, supportive, and empowering feedback to teachers.

To continuously improve the quality of instruction and learning across the district, CPSB narrowed in on improving collective teacher efficacy. This starts with delivering consistent, supportive, and empowering feedback to their teachers.


CPSB needed better tools and systems to support teachers consistently and effectively.

Calcasieu Parish School Board sought a solution to address three main issues:

  1. Teachers weren’t consistently receiving timely feedback, coaching, and instructional support.
  2. CPSB had no cohesive and reliable way of delivering high-quality feedback and personalized professional development to their teachers at scale.
  3. Leaders and teachers alike had limited visibility into data and could not easily track progress towards their instructional goals.
