Our Mission

IMSE’s mission is to empower districts, schools, teachers, and parents to be agents of change toward equitable literacy instruction for all learners that is driven by research. 

This is accomplished through intellectual conversations driven by data to design and implement curriculum, instruction, and assessment practices. IMSE fosters relationships to help shift a school’s culture to be equitable for all by providing resources for all and advocating for students to all stakeholders. We believe that all students can learn, and all teachers can learn to teach them.
