About the WestEd/SVMI Mathematics Network
WestEd and SVMI have partnered to help school districts in Southern California (Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, and San Bernardino Counties) successfully implement CA Common Core State Standards and prepare for California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP).

“Presenters were knowledgeable, but didn't make us feel "dumb". The materials were presented in such a way that we were never bored. The fact that we broke off into elementary and secondary helped too. I could have done two weeks with these ladies. I feel that they knew enough to keep me busy and engaged for that long.”
