Qualifications of this Organization (licensure, trademark, etc.):

At Pearson, our mission is to provide innovative, research-based learning solutions that elevate the art and science of teaching and inspire children to reach their greatest potential. Pearson’s comprehensive curriculum, assessment, and professional development tools assist teachers and administrators in making effective, data-driven, instructional decisions that result in increased student achievement. Working side-by-side with educators for over 100 years, Pearson has helped to educate more than 100 million students. From pre-school to high school, early learning to professional certification, textbooks to multimedia learning tools, and testing programs, Pearson products are implemented worldwide—more than any other private enterprise. Today, one in three US schoolchildren receives core subject instruction in reading, English, science, social studies, or math with a Scott Foresman or Prentice Hall textbook.

Qualifications of Instructors/ Staff that Provide Services:

Pearson Professional Development is committed to supporting teacher learning and student learning with services designed by leading education experts. Each on-site professional development opportunity helps teachers deepen their understanding of scientifically based instruction, build upon their own content knowledge, and learn to implement pedagogical best practices in the classroom. Pearson works with more than 1,000 authors and researchers to bring you practical, evidence-based professional development programs and resources, including many of the architects of the Common Core State Standards.

Pearson provides a broad range of professional development workshops, including on-site and virtual opportunities as well as K-12 basal and supplemental curriculum solutions to meet almost any need. Our online catalog for products and services is available at www.pearsonschool.com/k12catalogs

Explanation of how we are able to provide differentiated services to meet the individual needs of schools and districts.

With a long history of working with districts large and small, each with unique needs, Pearson works closely with schools and districts to ensure the appropriate solution is effectively provided and/or implemented.

How will we evaluate our services and support to schools and districts and its effectiveness in school/ district/ student achievement?

Pearson is a company with a strong sense of purpose, focusing on three key issues of social and economic importance: literacy, efficacy, and competitiveness. We aim to make a measurable difference to learning outcomes for students and educators, and our rigorous research methods — both in-house and independently conducted — provide solid evidence that our products, programs, and services are helping to enhance and further academic achievement. Building and maintaining trust is at the core of our business. By providing substantive, verifiable studies reflecting the effectiveness of our preK-12, higher education, and assessment programs, we are able to shine a spotlight on the deep connection between our commitment to excellence and demonstrated student success.
Research-based instruction with embedded assessment, coupled with Pearson’s efficacy studies conducted by leading educational research organizations, provides schools quality programs aimed at ensuring success for all students whether they be on level, advanced, struggling and at-risk, or the nation’s growing number of English language learners.
