Instructional Coach Report

August 23, 2021

The biggest change happening in mathematics in RSU #74 is the implementation of the new K - 5 enVision program, as well as the new Grade 6 through Algebra 2 Illustrative Mathematics Program. Staff were given training on enVision in June right after school was out, and the middle and high school staff was trained in Illustrative Mathematics for two days at the beginning of August.

This fall the Literacy Committee is scheduled to continue evaluating programs and making recommendations to implement district wide for the fall of 2022. In January we plan to convene a committee of science teachers K - 12 to evaluate and review the district science curriculum.

I have begun reaching out to the new K - 5 teachers to help them get oriented to the digital resources available, and will also be meeting with the new interventionists to help them get established in these new roles.

With the handbooks for the Teacher Evaluation system and for the Certification Committee approved this past spring, those new procedures will be implemented this coming school year.

I am eagerly looking forward to the new school year.

Respectfully Submitted,
