A year ago, the G-T/R-A Teacher Leadership Team participated in a state wide study which we were selected to be a part of based on the student growth. Iowa has now adopted the TAP rubric which G-T/R-A has used for the past three years for state-wide use! We are excited that the state will now be bringing professional opportunities closer to home for teachers to participate in and continue their professional growth!
