MCMI PD for Administrators


The Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSM) are encouraging many districts to seek support to help their students meet these expectations. Preparing mathematically proficient students may require us to transform current classroom instruction—every day. By building teacher capacity, helping teachers focus on student thinking, and promoting problem-solving and collaboration, the Metro Chicago Mathematics Initiative (MCMI) helps districts enable effective instruction and improve student learning.

School and district administrators have a crucial role in supporting these changes. We offer four courses during the 2018-2019 school year. Courses will support administrators in MCMI Mathematics PD Consortium districts, as well as interested administrators from other districts. Courses are strongly connected to the themes of MCMI teacher professional development to promote coherence and support collaborative action in districts and schools. Administrators may also attend the other MCMI sessions for teachers or teacher leaders.
