Bridges elementary math curriculum achieves highest EdReports rating
The following is a message from the Olympia School District’s K-12 Teaching and Learning Department sharing exciting national news about the Bridges elementary math curriculum. This week marks the end of the second year of the curriculum’s use in elementary schools throughout the Olympia School District.
A huge thank you goes out to all of the teachers who were on the elementary math adoption committee in 2013-14. Another thank you to our elementary teachers and the incredible work they have done with the implementation of Bridges. EdReports recently evaluated Bridges, and the Math Learning Center’s Collin Nelson relays the exciting results in the following report:
“Bridges in Mathematics Second Edition was evaluated by EdReports and met all three major criteria at each grade level. This places Bridges among the very few programs that have achieved the organization’s highest rating."
