National Tool Partners Educators with Professional Learning Experts to Support School Districts Across the Country

BATON ROUGE, La — Rivet Education announced today the addition of eight new professional learning organizations to the national Professional Learning Partner Guide (PLPG), bringing the total number of providers featured in the guide to 37. Akin to EdReports’ reviews of high-quality instructional materials, the PLPG is a list of organizations that provide the best curriculum-aligned professional learning services in the country.

“Research shows that when teachers have great materials and high-quality professional learning aligned to those materials, student achievement increases and classroom inequity is reduced,” said Alexa Obregon, manager of the PLPG. “Rivet Education also recognizes that providing teachers with curriculum-aligned professional learning and finding vendors who are qualified to provide this support can be hard work; we launched the PLPG to help take this burden off of school systems.”

In addition to the eight new providers, six existing providers added new services to their profile. Overall, the collective group provides professional learning services aligned to nearly 80 percent of the curriculum rated “green” on EdReports across all 50 states.

Rivet Education leverages its expertise in curriculum-aligned professional learning to conduct a rigorous evaluation of all organizations featured in the PLPG. Through a three-step process, reviewers evaluate providers’ professional learning materials against a set of criteria to assess if an organization provides significant evidence of high-quality, curriculum-aligned professional learning services in one of four phases: adoption, launch, ongoing support for teachers, or ongoing support for leaders.#####
