Guiding Partnerships with Schools (GPS)

The GPS Self-Assessment is an opportunity for schools to get feedback from staff and families on the quality of family-school partnerships. Through responses to a short set of research-aligned questions on the practices, perceptions and beliefs among staff and families within a school, the GPS system will reveal where a school falls along a continuum of family-school partnership "types", ranging from non-collaborative and ineffective, to high-functioning, dual-capacity and sustainable.

Illustrative Mathematics (IM) is a problem-based mathematics curriculum that develops a student's mathematical thinking skills through questioning, discussion, and real-world contexts and connections. Our team of IM Certified Facilitators are ready to support you onsite or online as you implement the IM curriculum. We offer a full suite of professional learning opportunities, as well as Math Center Kits for students to practice skills and concepts developed across the year.

Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) Services

Since 2017, we have been working diligently with a consortium of educators from over 90 school districts to build a K-12 curriculum and online learning community aligned to the NGSS. Each of our K-12 courses is also housed in our online professional learning community, Catalyst Community. These continuous efforts to enhance student achievement in the science classroom have led to the development of equitable supports and resources aimed at reducing barriers and raising student engagement.
