Curriculum & Content

Is your district looking for professional development opportunities for teachers? Do you wish your teachers had the most up to date information on content area state assessments? Are your teachers prepared with a deep understanding of the Common Core State Standards and Next Generations Science Standards and how to implement them in the classroom?

The Common Core State Standards and Next Generation Science Standards drive classroom instruction in states throughout our nation. Our ESD 123 Content Coordinators can help your teachers implement the classroom shifts that need to happen. Content Coordinators provide workshops in various content areas including math, science, STEM and literacy. We work to increase teacher leaders throughout our region and offer our teachers the most up to date information on the Common Core State Standards, Next Generation Science Standards, Smarter Balanced Assessment System and Washington State Content Assessments.
