Teachers deserve high-quality instructional materials and ongoing support to implement those materials. Mounting evidence suggests that providing teachers with access to high-quality, standards-aligned instructional materials and curriculum-based professional learning can result in improvement in student outcomes, making this a research-based continuous improvement strategy. The purpose of sharing these results is to enable districts to observe instructional materials being used, negotiate purchasing discounts with neighbors, or contract for professional learning from a vendor in a consortium using the same materials.
