Curriculum Implementation

CORE Learning builds the capacity of district and school leaders to implement high-quality instructional materials (HQIM) so that educators can ensure equitable outcomes for all students.

Our Model: What is Curriculum Implementaton?

CORE’s curriculum implementation model supports districts with the successful adoption and implementation of high-quality K-12 math and English Language Arts (ELA) instructional materials.

Our Curriculum Services model supports districts from the adoption process to successfully implementing HQIM.

Together, we will:

Build sustainable district- and site-level curriculum implementation systems

Provide professional learning experiences that enable teachers and leaders to effectively support and implement HQIM

Engage leaders to monitor and improve curriculum implementation
