We’re here to help with guidance on how to set up the right conditions to ensure a successful implementation, tailored specifically to the California context.
About Materials Implementation
Charting a strong implementation plan is crucial to maximizing your new instructional materials. To that end, CORE has identified a set of conditions, described on the right, for successful HQIM implementation, which apply to all content areas.
We know that to create equitable student outcomes, we must provide leaders and educators across a district ecosystem with the skills, knowledge, and tools to implement high-quality curricula. That’s why we are committed to helping districts and schools build their capacity to create the systems they need for sustainable implementation of high-quality instructional materials that produce equitable student outcomes.
Following this guidance, districts and other local educational agencies can engage in comprehensive, transformative implementation of newly adopted instructional materials.
CORE’s 6 Conditions for Success:
Resource, sponsor, and manage HQIM implementation at the leadership level
Identify your team, understand your context, and define your parameters.
Resource and execute an intentional launch
Gather and interpret data in order to identify implementation support needed by using student achievement data, district priorities, and other data sources.
Prioritize a strong Professional Learning strategy and Plan
Based on your data, narrow the focus for your improvement work by selecting one of the three key areas on which to focus: materials, planning, or delivery.
Communicate effectively and engage across key stakeholders
Once you’ve identified the key area in which you will focus, use the resources on the site to brainstorm solutions and then decide which solution to test.
Measure immediate and long-term impact across all levels of the system
Make a plan to test your solution in several short cycles with a clear method of assessing its effectiveness.
Plan for sustainability
Launch your solution and refine it through several cycles of testing, feedback, and improvement.
