Meeting Dates for School Year 2017-18
*Thursday, December 7, 2017--ZOOM
Link to Recording of ZOOM meeting found on Resources page 
Please note the PPT on the Resources page which explains the changes in National Boards that you may want to share with your teachers.
Questions from meeting:  (I will post responses here as soon as I have them.)
1.  How do schools verify their option for embedding the Personal Fianance standards in an exisitng course?
The new personal finance standards will be approved next Thursday in SBE meeting. The department is releasing a pretty detailed CM next Friday after SBE with the information, course codes, embedded courses, etc. There are several options for schools. If a district chooses to use a course other than the ones listed in next weeks CM memo that will have to submit a course approval.
2.  Will the reading training for 3-6 have any follow-up days during the school year, or be stand-alone summer?
Yes, there is follow-up during the school year.  The RISE 3-6 sessions are scheduled and on escWorks for registration.  Tammy Boyette is the trainer/contact for that professional development.  tammyb@dawsonesc.com
3.  Do K-6 teachers who do NOT teach reading have to have the "science of reading" professional development  The answer is yes, anyone who holds a K-6 teaching certificate is liscensed to teach reading and must meet the PD requirement.  The IDEAS modules would be an efficient way to do that for that population of teachers, as they will typically not be attending RISE Academies or RISE 3-6 trainings.
