Implementation Matrix Network

About The Implementation Matrix

The Implementation Matrix is a research-based, customizable tool designed to help educators at all levels of education systems implement new content standards with a focus on continuous improvement. Field-tested and informed by educators, the tool gives school and district leaders a straightforward, one-stop-shop framework to assess where they are in standards implementation and where they want to be. And the Matrix gives all involved a common language for ongoing planning and hands-on work to infuse the California Standards into every classroom to reach every student.

About the Matrix Network

Developing and refining the Implementation Matrix has been a process of continuous improvement rooted in close work with a network of piloters, experts and partners. Over the last two years The Center has worked with leaders from schools, districts, county offices of education, state policy organizations, technical assistance providers, and institutions of higher education to improve the Matrix and understand its impact.

Connecting school and district Matrix stakeholders together to learn from one another and problem solve has developed into an ongoing series of Implementation Matrix Network convenings led by The Center and hosted at the Los Angeles County Office of Education. The goal of the Implementation Network is to create a space for school and district leaders to come together using a common tool as a vehicle for learning from one another.

How partners are using the matrix

The matrix helped us, as teachers, to contextualize our collaboration from a broader perspective. It also helped us reflect on our collaboration, our curriculum, our instruction, and our assessment in deeper manners. Since then, we have consistently been able to return to our work using the matrix to support our efforts at supporting our diverse learners.

I plan on working with the district’s Leadership Collaborative Planning Team (district directors and site principals) to re-introduce the Instructional Leadership Matrix to assess our work this year, and to make the necessary adjustments to our professional learning for the remainder of the year.

The matrix has been instrumental in helping my leadership team speak a common language. It has allowed us to be more focused in our goal setting and progress monitoring.

I want to introduce the matrix to our Ed. Programs in order to focus them on standards implementation.
