Curriculum Implementation Change Framework

Schools and systems nationwide are adopting new curricula that hold great promise to advance teaching and learning and help teachers provide powerful educational experiences for students. The Curriculum Implementation Change Framework (CICF) helps leaders strengthen curricular implementation by understanding, in a systematic way, how teachers use their materials and what teachers and leaders think about them. Read the full Curriculum Implementation Change Framework and, for an overview, CICF At-A-Glance.   

With the support of the Carnegie Corporation of New York, the Center for Public Research and Leadership (CPRL) at Columbia University developed CICF alongside leading curriculum developers, professional learning providers, change management experts, school system leaders, family engagement organizations, and others. Over the course of the 2023-24 school year, CPRL and its partner organizations are field-testing CICF to test its validity, reliability, feasibility, and usability.
