​Teachers and school leaders are tasked with improving student outcomes, closing achievement gaps and preparing students for college and career.  To ensure all students have access to rigorous academics aligned with current Illinois learning standards to master these tasks, the academics team provides training and tools such as leadership, guidance, professional learning, high-quality educational resources, and instructional supports to enhance educational outcomes for all teachers and students.​​
