To support the delivery of Assessment Matters to their Network Improvement Community (“NIC”) school network. Teaching Matters is dedicated to providing high impact professional learning experiences for urban schools. Assessment Matters is its outcome-oriented program for New York City public K-12 schools that develops the assessment systems and culture that are critical to driving improved teaching and learning. Their coaches support principals, grade team leaders and teachers in establishing school-wide approaches for tracking student performance based on the expectations of the Common Core State Standards Initiative using an innovative standards-based mastery tracking platform that allows educators to examine progress while students engage in instruction. This, in turn, drives improved teaching and learning across the school. Funds will support the development of tools and structures to continually improve instruction and achievement in 28 schools, impacting the classrooms of an estimated 800 teachers.
