responsibilities of this proposed team not included in the mission of the Office of Professional Development and School Support?

Question#: 35



The Mathematics Implementation Team will work with schools identified for support by the offices of Curriculum and Instructional Programs (OCIP) and School Support and Improvement (OSSI).  Mathematics Implementation Team members are mathematics content specialists and will work side-by-side with school mathematics teams as they plan, look at student work, and deliver instruction.  The specialists will model, coach, and provide feedback to support instructional practices that result in improved student achievement.  As mathematics content specialists, it is critical that team members work closely with the mathematics supervisor and content specialist in OCIP who are revising the curriculum to align with the newly adopted Common Core State Standards and the Standards of Mathematical Practices.

The responsibilities of the proposed team are not included in the mission of OSSI because the mission statements in the operating budget document are based upon current office responsibilities and functions.
