Become a Certified Louisiana Math Content Leader

Take Initiative with Louisiana Math Content Leader Training

Educators in Louisiana can upgrade, enhance, and share their knowledge and skills by becoming certified content leaders. Content leaders are local educators who have the knowledge, skills, and concrete resources to provide high-quality, content-rich, and curriculum-specific professional learning to teachers in their school/school system. Our mathematics content leader training provides targeted professional learning that deepens math content leaders' understanding of core mathematical concepts and unlocks insights into the progression of mathematical concepts across grades. Content leaders who complete the program and demonstrate they have mastered the specific skills will receive special distinction from the LDOE indicating they have the knowledge and skills to support fellow math educators.

Our training empowers leaders to maximize our math programs so they can take greater initiatives to support students' mathematical development, address prerequisites, and connect them to grade-level content. Additionally, fulfilling the content leader role is an important step in the leadership journey for talented local educators, including Louisiana’s principal certification. 

i-Ready Classroom Mathematics is an approved Tier 1 instructional material. As an EdReports top-rated program, i-Ready Classroom Mathematics recognizes that mathematical discourse is an incredibly valuable tool that allows students to deepen and demonstrate their understanding of foundational and complex mathematics concepts.

All fields are required.
