Workshop Series Information:

Why: The Mathematics Framework Revision Timeline has recently been re-extended through May 2022. With the state-adopted list of math materials scheduled to be finalized in November 2024, selecting a high-quality math curriculum for your district is an urgent priority.

Adopting and effectively implementing high-quality, standards-aligned materials can be a relatively low cost, high impact method of improving student outcomes. When teachers are supported with high quality resources, they can focus on ensuring all students have access to grade-level content that helps prepare them for college and careers. 

What: The Math Adoption Cohort will meet six times over the course of the 2021-22 school year. Districts will develop a plan for the adoption of standards-aligned, high-quality math materials, including a change management strategy, instructional vision, and definition of quality in instructional materials. We also know that each district has a unique context so we aim to support school systems develop high-quality adoption processes based on their unique goals, needs, and priorities.

Details: California Local Education Agencies (LEAs) must be able to send a team composed of site and district-based instructional leadership, including teachers, to all sessions.Teachers are an integral part of the adoption process, and, due to the limited number of spots, we will be selecting districts based on their ability to commit to the team described above.

This workshop series is free and lunch will be provided during in-person sessions. Participants will need to cover their own travel, hotel, and other incidental costs.

*Updated Information given COVID-19 Delta Variant: The cohort was designed as a hybrid experience, with some in-person and some virtual sessions, kicking off in October. Currently, we are planning to host the workshops in-person, on the four dates listed. However, we encourage all districts and CMO to follow their travel policies and understand that all groups may not be able to attend in-person. If that is the case, we can work with you to find an alternative so that you can still fully participate in the cohort. Due to the evolving nature of the global pandemic, we will update all registrants if there are any changes to the workshop  format by September 8. We also commit to following all local COVID-19 related guidelines and mandates (i.e., social distancing and mask usage) for any in-person engagements.
