Montana’s leader in curriculum and professional development

Professional Learning

ACE supports schools with implementing high-quality instructional practices and assessments because teaching to the standards:

  • Allows transparent and honest feedback to learners, and it’s precise enough for diagnosis and prescription.
  • Provides an efficient process that allows more time for relevant and authentic experiences for our learners.
  • Prepares learners and develops skills they need to be self-navigating.

ACE supports school leaders and teachers with standards-based instruction, curriculum, and assessment. If a school wants to transition toward reporting as well, ACE can provide professional learning. Depending on the readiness of a district, implementation of standards-based reporting takes at least 3-5 years.

Member schools have access to our foundational summer institutes and then work sessions in our regions throughout the school year. Event Listing
