Sanford Inspire Program resources make it easy
for school leaders to provide differentiated support
for teachers. We offer implementation options
which can be customized for your school.
Resources can be used in a variety of ways to meet the unique needs of your school.
School leaders may implement our curriculum as part of their ongoing staff development plan. Professional development facilitator resources are available to support group learning in a face-to-face or blended format.
School leaders can direct individual teachers to specific self-paced tutorials on an as-needed basis. Our content addresses a range of critical teaching practices, making it easy to differentiate support for an entire staff of teachers.
School leaders can promote and make our curriculum available to teachers who wish to access resources on their own.
