Vol. 41, No. 6
Learning Forward recently released the Professional Learning State and District Planner to support state, district, and school leaders with the implementation of high-quality curriculum and instructional materials through professional learning that is intensive, data-driven, job-embedded, and classroom-focused. The planner provides a professional learning system framework to guide states and districts through a recursive process of planning professional learning with five stages and corresponding state and district tools. Decision-makers can use the activities and tools to prioritize selection and implementation of high-quality instructional materials as well as curriculum-anchored professional learning. The tools and resources also offer related guidance to ensure compliance with professional learning requirements embedded in Title IIA. State departments of education and selected districts in Illinois, Maryland, Missouri, and Oklahoma piloted different tools in the planner
