26 Next Steps for On-Going Success Review all of our adopted curriculum materials (i.e. textbooks, manipulatives, technology devices, programs, etc.) to determine alignment to new standards as well as the gaps. Establish a priority list of what will need to be purchased to support the teaching and learning of the new standards. Identify professional development needs aligned to learning the new content in the standards as well as the pedagogy needed to ensure the level of rigor called for by the standards is attainable for both the teachers and the students. Review and identify the level of support each site will need to ensure teachers feel confident and successful with the implementation of the new standards, instructional strategies, and resources.
