The Office of Curriculum, Instruction and Professional Development (CIPD) works directly with component school districts to develop offerings that align to the NYS Department of Education’s Reform Agenda and district initiatives. In partnership with our districts, we support state and district reforms by contracting with nationally recognized authors and presenters to provide workshops. We then offer follow-up sessions and coaching to assist with implementation.
