ESUCC Support for High-Quality Instructional Materials
The Nebraska Instructional Materials Collaborative (NIMC) is an ongoing effort to provide Nebraska’s school districts and educators with resources to support the adoption and implementation of high-quality instructional materials (HQIM). The NDE, in partnership with the state’s Educational Service Units (ESU), have worked together to build out a materials selection process that is part of the NIMC resources. This selection process helps districts
• Determine curricular materials alignment to Nebraska’s content standards.
• Determine curricular materials alignment to the instructional shifts embedded in the Nebraska
• Identify supplemental supports necessary for strong implementation of selected materials.
With nearly 50-60% of Nebraska school districts using ESSER funds to adopt/purchase high-quality
instructional materials there are increased needs from ESUs to support implementation. This contract would enable ESUs to conduct a statewide needs assessment and create a statewide plan for support.
