In Idaho, NWCC works with the Idaho State Department of Education (SDE) on these priorities:
Leading this work is the Idaho State Coordinator Claire Gates, who serves as a liaison to both the NWCC and REL Northwest. In her NWCC role, Gates provides technical assistance to SDE, building the state’s capacity to support districts and schools to improve instruction, close achievement gaps, and improve educational outcomes for all students.
In her REL Northwest role, Gates works with SDE and other education stakeholders to identify high-priority needs and provide resources to meet those needs. As a team member of the Idaho Statewide System of Support Research Alliance, she is helping members make more informed decisions about improving low-performing schools.
Gates is a senior program advisor at Education Northwest, the parent organization of REL Northwest and NWCC. She uses her 30-plus years of teaching to design technical assistance and training on mathematics and science curriculum, instruction, and assessment.
