This research explored several types of instructional coaches currently used in school districts throughout Maine. More specifically, this research examined how those positions are funded and whether those positions can be maintained as an embedded form of professional development for all teachers. Findings indicated that there are multiple avenues that can be used to fund instructional coaches for school districts, however, whether all of these forms of funding can be sustained for districts to cover the operating costs in future years remained unclear.
