An introductory kick-off meeting for our Philadelphia schools that are receiving Ongoing OGAP Support this school year. Principals, math liaisons and grade 3-5 teachers will receive an overview of the program for the year and discuss strategies for deepening implementation of OGAP at the classroom and school level. In breakout groups, school leaders will be given tools for supporting teachers in their use of OGAP. Teachers will work on integrating OGAP into their current math curriculum and using it as a tool to analyze students work and make instructional decisions.

Schools who are receiving OGAP support this year will have a half-day visit from an OGAP trainer. They will facilitate a Professional Learning Community (PLC) for grades 3-5. During the PLC, teachers will examine student work, review strategies to enhance concept development, select items from the item bank and work on embedding formative assessment items into their curricular materials.
