About Reach

Reach began in 2004 as the On The Move School Improvement Program, which focused on supporting school leaders. As program leaders developed relationships with school principals, teachers, and community leaders, the need for a more comprehensive approach to fostering leadership at all levels within schools and supporting community organizations became increasingly apparent and urgent.

In 2006, a team of working educators came together to design and pilot the Reach Teacher Credential programs, which was subsequently accredited by the Commission on Teacher Credentials and is now in its third year of implementation.

All Reach Institute programs employ six central program practices including: job embedded coaching, personalized professional development, need to know content knowledge, coaching & mentoring, collaborative work, and reflection.

Reach was incubated and launched by
