Minnesota DOE Capacity Development

Area(s) of Work: K-12 Education

The Minnesota Department of Education is seeking support for the capacity development of its team in advanced implementation practices. To support the development of implementation capacity, the National Implementation Research Network at the UNC Frank Porter Graham Child Development Institute proposes providing a blended model of implementation practice and implementation research to inform the future development of the Minnesota Department of Educations' implementation science infrastructure. The desired outcomes of the collaboration will not only expedite their ability to implement at the district level but also normalize barriers, and provide learnings that could impact K-12 educational agencies across the country.
