Job Outlook

Employment of instructional coordinators is projected to grow 6 percent from 2018 to 2028, about as fast as the average for all occupations. States and school districts will continue to be held accountable for test scores and graduation rates, putting more of an emphasis on student achievement data. Schools may increasingly turn to instructional coordinators to develop better curriculums and improve teachers’ effectiveness. The training that instructional coordinators provide for teachers in curriculum changes and teaching techniques should help schools meet their standards in student achievement. As schools seek additional training for teachers, demand for instructional coordinators is projected to grow. However, many instructional coordinators are employed by state and local governments. Therefore, employment growth will depend largely on state and local government budgets.
