The Partnership

The purpose of the partnership is to establish professional learning communities in order to provide collaborative and sustained professional development for teachers in targeted K-12 schools. The immediate focus of the professional development is the Alabama College and Career Ready Standards, especially the Standards of Mathematical Practice. To this end, we have established the following goals:

1) To establish a triad leadership team of mathematics educators, mathematicians, and AMSTI specialists to provide professional development for facilitating PLCs, monitor school and across-district PLC development, and help the school systems move toward sustaining the PLCs focused on continuous improvement and evaluation of instruction and learning;

2) To provide professional development for administrators to help them become knowledgeable of issues related to mathematics instruction and versed in the dimensions related to successful PLCs;

3) To provide grade level leaders with professional development related to the ACCRS-M, facilitating PLCs, and student data analysis;

4) To provide teachers with professional development related to the ACCRS-M, participating in PLCs, and pedagogical analysis; and

5) To improve student outcomes through the work of the PLCs.
