The Richmond Public Schools Implementation Journey
Richmond Public Schools adopted EL Education K-8 Language Arts and Eureka Math from Great Minds in 20-21. The district worked with EL Education coaches and Eureka math specialists to design and deliver virtual professional development for teachers. In 2021-22, the district is continuing its implementation with in-person instruction and professional development, while also inviting public feedback on prospective science curricula including SAVVAS Realize and Amplify Science.
