ENVoY: Educational Non-Verbal Yardstick
ENVoY was created by Michael Grinder and brought to our district by A & J Educational Consulting.

Our district was drawn to the ENVoY program because the data showed us an opportunity to increase instructional time by at least 20% and a way to increase teachers' strategies for classroom management and because of included monthly coaching support.
