2018-2019 Details of Service Progress

posted Apr 5, 2018, 5:17 PM by Lynda Matchullis

Do you know where a new service program comes from?  It starts with conversations throughout the year at our network meetings and with our facilitators.  Hearing from our members is critical so we begin to ask what should we keep doing and what should we do differently when we are talking to superintendents, curriculum coordinators, lead teachers, principals and those in the classroom.  We share our preliminary thinking with our stakeholders and partners before the final version is released in the spring.  Right now, we are in the midst of getting that feedback.  Watch for the 2018-2019 Details of Services, as it will be out soon!
