Our 1st meeting of the year will be on Thursday, September 28th at the Natick Town Hall from 8:15 AM - 11:30 AM.  This will be a combination planning meeting for the year and update on what transpired over the summer. Many of our members attended conferences, workshops and trainings that will help guide our work this year.  We will also have an update from MAPLE about the results of the survey they implemented on Personalized Learning in Massachusetts this past spring.  

Please RSVP so I can get you a parking pass to avoid you having to pay the meters.  Also please forward this email as an invite to colleagues that you think may be interested in joining our SIG group.  All are welcome I just need them to RSVP me at so that I know who is coming.  We will provide breakfast for the meeting.
