The mission of the Instructional Quality Initiative (IQI), launched by NSNO in collaboration with Louisiana Department of Education (LDOE) in January 2018, is to:
- Increase the number of schools using aligned Tier 1 curriculum in the areas of ELA and Math – this includes Science support, as of 2020.
- Provide curriculum implementation support by creating collaborative spaces for teachers and leaders.
- Increase student proficiency in core subjects for K-12 students.
