Building Capacity for Fort Wayne Community Schools

Students studying

All students deserve high-quality mathematics curriculum. The Dana Center is helping build capacity in Fort Wayne Community Schools as they work to develop new mathematics curriculum.

“We are at a point where we recognize the need for a universal, rigorous curriculum across all schools and grade levels in the district,” said FWCS Superintendent Wendy Robinson.

The new mathematics curriculum, written by FWCS teachers with assistance and mentoring from Dana Center staff, focuses on building a foundation for students’ future success in college-level math.

“With Fort Wayne Community Schools’ strong commitment to equity and student success,” said Dana Center K-12 director Doug Sovde, “the work they are doing will have a lasting and positive impact on their community.”
