Instructional Systems and Capacity Building

edCount provides high-quality, research-based technical assistance to state and local clients that wish to improve the alignment and delivery of classroom instruction, as well as the administrative processes that support it. Our instructional alignment and capacity building services focus on collaborating with stakeholders to create systemic resources such as curriculum, professional development materials, and supplemental tools to support teachers and administrators in their jobs. We strive to assist practitioners with their short- and long-term needs by building the capacity to continue to implement, grow, and evaluate such systems themselves.
