Implementation

Our Sanford Harmony team will help you design a customized implementation and training plan for your organization. This phased approach includes ordering procedures and a menu of services that will provide ongoing communication and support for successful implementation of Harmony.

Onboarding

The onboarding stage will help you organize your Sanford Harmony team, order materials and determine training options for your organization. All Harmony trainings provide a variety of opportunities for educators to practice strategies and to learn how to successfully use the grade thematic lessons and activities.
