Challenging Schedule

 

CHALLENGE 

A client’s last minute publishing plan approval resulted in a multigrade science program targeted to meet adoption requirements for two state versions as well as a national version. All needed to be developed simultaneously and in a compacted schedule and timeframe.

SOLUTION

Symmetry rose to the occasion by building a team that prototyped and developed an entire science program for multiple grade levels and multiple state versions within the required time frame. Content included student editions, teacher editions, ancillaries, and online content. Working with Science subject-matter experts from across the country, we were able to assemble a full-service development team for both print and digital, and fully met the challenge of a multi-grade, multi-state, publishing challenge.
