    In addition, the Office of Elementary Education is responsible for using the most up-to-date research to guide curriculum development, delivering professional development to school leaders, guaranteeing that school teachers have a clear understanding of the content frameworks and providing strategies designed to increase the percentage of students making academic gains in all content areas. The department is, furthermore, responsible for supporting instructional activities that build teachers’ extensive understanding of the content being taught and providing productive, engaging learning experiences and environments.
