Report: MMSD expands support around literacy, tries new math curriculum

The Madison Metropolitan School District has expanded support around literacy by building community support and partnerships in community schools, successfully piloting a new math curriculum and expanding use of technology during the first half of the school year, according to a release on the district’s mid-year review.

After the first half of the 2016-17 school year, the district conducted a deep review of progress to identify strengths and challenges, collaboratively problem-solve and make adjustments where needed, officials said.

“Our strategy, as captured in our strategic framework, is aimed at eliminating the gaps in opportunity that lead to disparities in achievement,” Superintendent Jennifer Cheatham said in the release. “We want to be a model public school district, one that demonstrates what it looks like to serve all students and families well – and we’re excited about the progress that we’ve made so far this school year.”

The full review includes updates from students and schools.
