Through a collaborative effort of SDE staff, ISEE Navigators, district leaders and Discovery Education we have developed the Integrated Professional Development Modules which are available for use by all Idaho school districts. The SDE has worked closely with Discovery Education to develop these training modules for administrators that encompass and integrate the Idaho Core, Next Generation Assessments, and Digital Content, all supported by Data Driven Instructional Practices and the educational ties between them all. For more detailed information on the Integrated Professional Development Modules please contact Alex Macdonald at email@example.com.

The Idaho State Department of Education is partnering with institutions of higher education across the state to host three Statewide Regional Mathematics Academies this year. These free, two-day conferences will focus on professional development in mathematics for K-12 teachers. The emphasis will be on orchestrating productive teaching. Dr. Brad Findell from The Ohio State University, who helped develop the Idaho Core Standards - Mathematics that Idaho chose to adopt in 2011, will be a featured keynote speaker. If you have questions, please contact Tena Welfring at firstname.lastname@example.org.
