In Elementary Advanced Placement (EAP), 4th and 5th grade standards require the use of middle school math curriculum. This year, the Northshore School District is implementing a new middle school math curriculum: Core Focus. All staff, including EAP teachers are receiving ongoing professional development through quarterly meetings as these new materials are adopted.
Professional Learning Community
The Highly Capable Program identifies yearly program goals and one math related goal of the 2018-19 school year focuses on elementary math within the in-class HiCap model. We are looking to increase equity between in-class Math and EAP Math service models. To accomplish this goal, we have partnered with elementary administrators to establish a Professional Learning Community (PLC). The charge of this group is to develop and try specific math structures and strategies that will achieve great equity between service models. We look forward to sharing and celebrating the work the team will conduct this year!
