What we do

In partnership with the Idaho State Department of Education, Idaho universities, and the sixteen K-12 school districts in Region 2, Ryan and the Regional Math Center team oversees all aspects of mathematics education in this vast region of North Idaho to ensure all students have opportunities to engage in deep learning of mathematics. This work entails intensive, job-embedded, ongoing professional learning with all district and school staff in the region through designing and facilitating re-certification courses, workshops ranging from a few hours to 5 days, one-on-one work with superintendents, principals and teachers, co-teaching and co- planning through coaching cycles and supporting curricular and assessment decisions. Since 2016, we have built more than 40 lesson study teams both within and across districts, engaged more than 150 teachers in the lesson study process with a 95% return rate year over year with teachers and principals at all grade levels K-12.
