Abstract: 

The Montana Sustainability Plan articulates the goals, scope, and roll-out of Montana’s standards-based education reform initiative. Montana’s plan details the state’s key action steps and timeline for the implementation of the Standards-in-Action innovations. Contents of this plan also address staffing; expected outcomes and measures; professional development activities; and monitoring and evaluation.  Montana developed their sustainability plan as part of their participation in the Standards-in-Action professional development program, sponsored by the Office of Career, Technical, and Adult Education (2009–2011). Montana agreed to allow their completed plan as well as other sustainability materials to be included in the Handbook for Sustaining Standards-Based Education in Adult Education (2014). 

Benefits and Uses: 

Follow the Montana State team's progress from demonstration project to full implementation of their standards initiative. In some cases, with their approval, the author has edited and shortened the state examples, but the material included is all based on each state’s particular work.
