The Office of Mathematics exists to provide the students it serves with a mathematical ‘lens’-- allowing them to better access the world with improved decisiveness, precision, and dexterity; facilities attained as students develop a broad and deep understanding of mathematical content. Achieving this goal defines our work - ensuring that students are exposed to excellence via a rigorous, standards-driven mathematics curriculum, knowledgeable and effective teachers, and policies that enhance and support learning.


    2019 - 2020 GOALS

    GOAL I

    Strengthen and align curriculum to the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics, ensuring that it is engaging, challenging, and consistently implemented.


    Improve the quality of mathematics instructional programs in grades K-12; thereby maintaining the mutually reinforcing balance between procedural skill and fluency, conceptual understanding, and problem-solving.


    Advance the use and management of assessment; understanding assessment (e.g. diagnostic, formative, summative, authentic) as a continuous thread of instructional practice, rather than a series of isolated events.


    Create a highly effective professional development system for teachers and administrators that are more focused on delivering quality instruction and aligned to the learning needs of teachers and students.

    GOAL V

    Empower parents to be more effectively engaged in their child’s instruction through the creation of a highly-accessible, web-based system for parents and students that increases exposure to and the availability of the districts’ instructional resources.
