See descriptions and details below for each area.

Mathematics Leadership Teams

As schools engage in implementing the Common Core Standards and prepare for M-STEP and SAT Assessments, they recognize that these new assessments require major changes in not only curriculum but also in classroom instruction and assessment. Because of this, a county wide professional development plan has been crafted to help sustain schools in this rigorous work. Each session will require participants to acquire skills and strategies for use with staff and students. Participants must commit to attending all four sessions. Lunch is on your own, there is no cost, but pre-registration is required.
