To support districts and campuses in the Region 4 area, we offer a myriad of services to build capacity in the implementation of High Quality Instructional Materials (HQIM). Teaching Strategies and Amplify implementation training services are paid for by grant funds, at no cost to the district.  This includes coaching and professional development. There may be costs associated with Eureka Math—contact our representative for full details.

 

To begin our partnership, we invite you to take this very brief survey, linked here so that we can determine how to best support you.
