Math Program Review
The Math Teaching and Learning profile provides your school with an overall picture of the mathematics instructional program and recommendations for improvement. The process includes an onsite visit from a review team from PIMSER to conduct classroom observations and interviews with students, parents, teachers of math, and the principal. In addition, teachers and principals will complete online surveys about their roles in the mathematics program. The review team then analyzes all collected data and develops a comprehensive report. Finally, a member of the review team returns to the school to review the report with the principal and answer any questions. View a full description of the MTLP process and standards.
