North Adams Public Schools

Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment » Welcome


The Office of Teaching and Learning (OTL) coordinates the curriculum, common assessments, and professional growth and development for North Adams educators (including the district professional development and mentoring programs, and the educator evaluation system).


OTL staff also coordinate a number of special programs including the Title I reading support program, the English Language Learner program, the Teaching to Learn (T2L) science program, and the 21st Century After School Programs at the Brayton and Colegrove Park elementary schools.


Finally, staff in our office are responsible for all the state data reporting and managing the data in our student and staff information system (Power School), and other in-house data systems. We provide data analysis services to teachers and administrators  throughout the district to assist them with the continuous improvement of their schools, programs, and individual practice.
