We are indebted to the educators who thoughtfully assisted in conducting the OER mathematics and ELA reviews. The panel members endeavored to apply the scoring criteria objectively and with a commitment to providing a quality resource to school districts looking for guidance. They devoted many hours out of their busy schedules to do this work. We are grateful for their efforts.
