Learn how the Bethel School District in Washington State (enr. 20,130) engaged the entire organization to create a system of support that generates an ongoing interaction between principals, teachers, and district office leaders. This new framework for curriculum implementation is responsible for rapidly turning principals into connected and confident instructional leaders that increase teacher capacity to successfully implement curriculum aligned to the Common Core Standards.
