MISIC: Impacting Students; Improving Curriculum

We exist to support district leaders and teachers in building their confidence and capacity to design and deliver on a curriculum that prepares students for their futures.

In addition to teaching and learning materials, the consortium offers its members schools several different workshops on using data to create changes in classroom instruction. Consortium members are involved in helping build better testing system and instructional practices in statewide as well as national efforts. Members work closely with AEA personnel to impact instructional practice and to help teachers make informed instructional decisions.
