The Mission of the Curriculum Department is to ensure high levels of learning for ALL students by providing the best possible resources and support for administrators and teachers.
2019-2020 Professional Learning Opportunities
Math Professional learning opportunities are available throughout the year in three different formats.
Meet-Ups: Meet-ups are face-to-face grade-level specific meetings. Curriculum Fellows facilitate these sessions and share program-specific information and resources. Highlights from these Meet-ups will be sent to all teachers via email after the session. For the 2019-2020 school year, meets-ups will be conference-style and held on September 11 and March 18.
#MathBUZZ: Join us online for short 30-minute, fast-paced, professional learning session. The latest and greatest math related news and resources will be shared. Simply click on the link in your e-mail invite to join live, or watch recorded sessions on this website (click on more and then #MathBUZZ) or log into Twitter and search for @jbtmath.
Math Minutes: Did you miss a meet-up or a #Buzz session? Don't worry. The highlights from these sessions will be sent in small 5-minute messages or video tutorials each Thursday.
Additional Sessions: Watch the calendar and your e-mail for other face-to-face and blended professional learning opportunities during school, after school, and during the summer.
