- New videos to provide technical assistance for ASSIST (Reminder the SSR or Interim SA is due March 20, see EdYES! page)
- Consideration to wait on the new SDA as MDE may allow schools to copy and update the old SDA as an option in addition to pilot the new, streamlined SDA using local data.
- The School Improvement page now contains a sample math goal, implementation guide and a link to a sample Student Learning Objective (see the SLO page for more information).
- If time allows, other topics may include the RNN Data Tool and a brief overview on Student Growth Percentiles.
As often happens at the MDE School Improvement Conference, several updates are made to this website in preparation of a presentation. Though the presentation on March 16 will feature resources found online, this powerpoint will be used to guide some of the session. Updates to the website include:
Reminder to Submit by Friday, March 20
Please remember to submit the EdYES! Report in ASSIST by Friday, March 20. NCA Accredited schools will submit the Interim SA whereas MDE Accredited schools will submit the NEW School Systems Review (SSR26) that replaced the SPR40/90.
NEW podcasts to provide technical assistance to create, attach, complete, submit and approve the EdYES! Report are now available on the ASSIST Support Page. Of course, there is additional support still found on the EdYES! Report page, though SI Teams and/or administration is running out of time to involve stakeholders in the process.
@ReadingNowNet shared their findings to a room with over 300 educators willing to come together to focus on early literacy. When the findings were initially released to area superintendents, the request was made to develop an interactive tool to identify where each school fell on a three year average.
The #ReadingNow Network Interactive Data Tool is available today! Simply visit the RNN Data Page on the SI Timeline. Learn more about the Reading Now Network at GoMASA.org/readingnow, the website should be updated with videos supporting each of the five findings by April 1, 2015.
