We are so very excited to have your professional expertise populate the platform. We do ask that you remember that the platform and the curricular review experience is a dress rehearsal. Please keep grace on your mind as we explore what this process looks like. With 200 educators in the Academy, it may take a little while to troubleshoot any problems you encounter. Please email with concerns that arise. We will be flexible with your review timeline, and we ask that you be flexible with this process.
