The consortium recently hosted the MOEC MATH Cohort for high school teachers. The seminar involved teachers and leaders from 10 districts, 17 schools, and two community colleges in collaborative professional development designed to improve student success in high school mathematics.
“This is the first time that I can remember the entire metropolitan area coming together under one initiative to focus on one area where we can all improve: Math,” says Superintendent of Westside Community Schools, Blane McCann.
“When teachers return from training and they are clamoring for more, you know you have hit the right cord,” says Jim Sutfin, Superintendent of Millard Public Schools.
Due to popular demand, the high school cohort will expand by adding another district and five additional high schools next year; a similar middle school cohort is also planned.
