Kalispell Public Schools
School Services of Montana has partnered with Kalispell Public Schools to advance the district’s mission to engage students in personalized and diverse opportunities that empower individuals to become lifelong learners and responsible citizens. During the 2022-23 school year, SSoM collaborated with district leadership to develop and facilitate a professional learning series designed to build school leader knowledge of Personalized, Competency-Based Education (PCBE). This partnership is continuing into the 2023-24 school year with SSoM working alongside KPS coaches and administrators to build capacity and advance implementation goals.
In the fall of 2023, School Services of Montana partnered with Marion School District to develop and facilitate a half-day workshop designed to build teacher knowledge of the Science of Reading (SoR). Through learning about big ideas in how children learn to read and the most effective evidence-based instructional practices for teaching reading, Marion teachers developed expertise and built their capacity to make informed instructional choices within their curricular resources.
Noxon Public Schools
In August, Genevieve Thomas, Director of Professional Learning for School Services of Montana led Noxon teachers in a math curriculum planning workshop. Teachers learned the steps for planning a guaranteed and viable curriculum using the four essential questions of learning as a guiding framework, reviewed their prioritized math standards, learned and applied a process for unpacking standards into learning targets, and considered structures for year-long contexts and curriculum maps.
