We are currently in the Regional Rollout (phase 2) of a Three-Phase Rollout Plan. During the Pilot, we deployed 10 units. During Phase 2, the Regional Rollout, we will deploy an additional 30 units. During Phase 3, the Statewide Rollout, we will deploy the remaining 60 units.
We will support participants in BLOSSM through mini-workshops to provide time for teachers to work with one another, and to have time with our seismic analysts and curriculum experts.
