BACK OFFICE BUSINESS: North Carolina School Districts Adopt IM Certified Professional Learning

The implementation of North Carolina’s new K–8 math standards and the move to a problem-based approach in the classroom require a significant change in practice for many educators. A growing number of districts, including Wake County Public School System and New Hanover County Schools, are turning to Illustrative Mathematics (IM) Certified Professional Learning. Through IM Certified Professional Learning, educators can develop the skills to implement standards-aligned instruction, ensure curricular coherence within and across grade levels, facilitate meaningful mathematics discussions, and implement instructional routines that engage students and improve their learning.
