    The State Department of Education recently posted a new professional development series:

    Principal Workshop Series: A Focus on Mathematics

            Shifting Math Instruction – Rigor in the Classroom

            Math Practice Standards – Classroom Evidence

            Instructional Coaching – Making the Most Out of Math Coaches

    This year, the Commissioner's Summer Math Challenge: A Journey Through Mathematics had over 23,000 students participating.  The Connecticut State Department of Education would like to recognize those schools that were top participators. As a result, they are asking all schools to have a designee compile the summer math logs and complete the School Reporting Form: https://sdect.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_ey5HArhVG5MqurP by September 30, 2019.  The reporting form is similar to the Governor's Summer Reading reporting which schools have been doing for quite some time.  A recognition ceremony is currently planned for early November.

    Adding on the option of virtual coaching will give each participant access to three virtual coaching sessions with a Certified IM Facilitator. The virtual coaching sessions will be focused on the instructional routines that are embedded in the IM curriculum, and will contain the following phases:


    Phase 1: Coach holds a 30-minute virtual conference with the participant to discuss an instructional focus.


    Phase 2: Participant records a focused “snapshot” lesson segment and uploads video to the private, secure virtual coaching platform.


    Phase 3: Participant views video and reflects, while coach views and provides personalized feedback.

    In-district coaching or support is also available. Please contact Lindsey Ramos at liramos@crec.org for further information. For assistance with registration, contact Deborah Van Wyngaarden at dvanwyngaarden@crec.org or 860-509-3687.
