The Department of Defense Education Activity has awarded a potential five-year contract to Catapult Learning for systemwide literacy professional learning services for DoDEA K-12 staff around the world.
Catapult Learning said Tuesday 80 of its educators will lead in-person professional learning implementations for 168 schools across 11 countries and implement systemwide professional learning and literacy model units.
Model units will aim to address College and Career Ready Standards adoption issues and establish an organizational structure to help students meet CCRS for literacy, Catapult Learning noted.
“With forty years of experience and a team of experts dedicated to providing professional development to school leaders and teachers,” said Jeffrey Cohen, Catapult Learning CEO.
“Partnering with the Defense Department to improve the quality of education for the families serving in our military is an honor and a privilege, and we are thrilled to have been selected for this important work.“
Catapult Learning added it will deliver face-to-face and virtual professional learning to help DoDEA teachers develop skills, strategies and structure to support students.
