Result of Funding: We have heard from educators across the Commonwealth that they wish for more time to collaborate with their colleagues, more time to review, analyze, and understand the standards and more time to plan how to teach the standards using the curriculum and instructional materials available to them. This grant is designed to meet those needs and to provide teacher leaders with time for robust professional learning that is catalyzed, designed, organized, and carried out by teachers-to work together, to collaborate, and to build products to meet their identified outcome goals focused on the standards and curriculum implementation.
