We are eager to support Maryland districts as they engage in the hard work of accelerating learning for all students. We are doing similar work with districts in ten states currently, with experience in more than 25 states. As an example, in Texas, we are helping more than 30 districts lead key strategic initiatives focused on implementing research-based instructional strategies in reading and math, delivering tutoring, and adopting high-quality instructional materials. Nationally, Ed Direction provides strategic planning, performance management, advising on selecting and implementing high-quality instructional materials and practices, coaching, systems-level support, and direct professional learning. We look forward to helping all Maryland students thrive.
