Doing What Works: Call for Site Nominations

Heeding the call from educators across the nation, the U.S. Department of Education launched its Doing What Works (DWW) initiative in Fall 2007. Designed to equip educators with the tools, resources and support they need to implement research-based practices, DWW will assist states, districts, and schools to take action.

One of the current development efforts is focused on the Final Report of the National Mathematics Advisory Panel, with two areas being developed, the first of which is Critical Foundations of Mathematics Pre-K-8, and the second will focus on major topics in Algebra for secondary education.

RMC Research Corporation, in partnership with the American Institutes for Research (AIR), and WestEd, is leading the development efforts for Critical Foundations of Mathematics Pre-K-8. An Overview of the U.S. Department of Education's NCLB Doing What Works (DWW) Initiative provides additional information.

As part of our development efforts, we are trying to identify schools and/or districts that we would be able to work with as sites that have demonstrated success. (See link below for what criteria are used in this determination.)

Schools profiled on the DWW website must demonstrate student achievement in mathematics that meets the requirements of adequate yearly progress under No Child Left Behind.

The purpose of this announcement is to ask your help in identifying schools and/or districts that you know meet the above criteria, for which you can complete and submit the DWW nomination form. See URL below.
