Ken Rocha, Director of Secondary Education at Pleasanton Unified School District in California, needed to select a new ELA curriculum that reflected 21st-century learning and district-wide priorities. In addition to making the right decision, he also needed to make sure the process was transparent and resulted in a group decision that reflected student, teacher, parent and community voices.

Were teachers implementing their new practices? With KickUp’s help, she set out to determine what impact her interventions had weeks after the workshop.
