CORE-RDA (Collaborating for Outstanding Readiness in Education – Results Driven Accountability) is a project that provides support through coaching to primarily K-3 classroom teachers in 64 schools rated D & F throughout the state of New Mexico. Rocio Benedicto, Doctoral Candidate in Curriculum & Instruction, and a member of the NMSU College of Education STEM Center, is the Principal Investigator on a new $840,000 grant.

With financial funding from PED Title 1 programs and in partnership with region 7, the CORE coaching team consists of 21 highly qualified educators who serve from one to six schools in strengthening knowledge and use of Response to Intervention strategies in English Language Arts and Mathematics content areas.

The coaches will work in collaboration with teachers in K-3 classrooms to improve academic performance in mathematics and reading. The teachers will receive stipends and coaching will occur on a regular basis in classrooms. Each of the coaches will research five of their school classrooms to determine what elements work best to help student learning and achievement in mathematics and reading.
