  The National Council of Supervisors of Mathematics (NCSM) & the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) have published the joint document below to provide guidance for mathematics teachers and leaders at all levels to make informed decisions for next steps due to COVID-19.

Moving Forward: Mathematics Learning in the Era of COVID-19. The purpose of this document is to “focus on decisions that must be made regarding equitable access to high-quality mathematics teaching and learning, intentionally considering the needs of each and every learner and teacher. Decision-makers-whether they be teachers, teams, teacher leaders, coaches, administrators, or policymakers at the local, state, and provincial levels-must consider the diverse needs of learners and teachers when making policy and instructional decisions.”
