877: Bay Area Secondary Partners: San Francisco and Oakland

Lizzy and Harold will be joined in this session by Phil Daro and Phil Tucher.
We are organizing this interactive session in response to demand; we recognize that many districts are grappling with a course sequence that preserves the coherence of CCSS and the thoughtful learning progressions, and also provides opportunities for access to high level mathematics.  We have found many districts in California and across the US are interested in our process, from the research basis to the outreach to the implementation.  The issue has garnered both media attention and peer interest.
