ESC-Specific Professional Learning on High-Quality Instructional Materials (HQIM)

There are several professional learning opportunities specifically created for Educational Service Centers (ESCs).



Ohio Materials Matter: High-Quality Instructional Material Webinars for ESCs
For: All ESC staff who want to learn about HQIM and how to support districts with HQIM 
EdReports will facilitate a series of ESC-focused HQIM webinars that provide ESC staff with information and resources they can use to support districts with the adoption of instructional materials.  

Ohio Materials Matter: Smart Adoption Practices (ESC-specific) 
For: ESC staff who want to focus on guidance and resources to support districts in the process of SELECTING high quality instructional materials
EdReports will work with ESCs to support smart adoption practices – the training focuses on mathematics, but content will be applicable to other subject areas. These “train-the-trainer” sessions will provide guidance and resources to support districts in the process of selecting high-quality instructional materials. Training will be beneficial for ESCs that are supporting districts that have adoptions in the near future, as well as those that will be looking to adopt at a later time.
