I spoke with Laura Finlinson about elementary reading and math. She said, "We (the curriculum department) are not here to crack the whip. We are here to be supportive." She also stated that if principals request, she will come to individual schools to present the framework into which reading and math fit. If you are having a lot of questions at your school, ask your principal to invite Laura Finlinson, Administrator of Curriculum and Staff Development, to come share this information with your staff.
