The 30-60-90 Day Placemat
is designed for use as a pacing guide in your work with CT4GC implementation for the first 90 days of school for Cohort 2. For Cohort 1, it can be also used as an implementation check to determine where you are in the work. This document contains guiding questions and activities that will help your team to stay on target, ensure fidelity of implementation, and allow for reflection to promote growth in systems change for closing achievement gaps.
* This is a fluid document that will be refined based upon needs of schools as well as feedback. However, the timeline for assignments will remain consistent.
