Professional Development: 

MSDE Leadership Opportunity - July 2018

The Office of Leadership Development and School Improvement is collaborating with Insight Education Group to facilitate several evaluator training sessions this summer for principals and assistant principals. The training sessions will be held over two days and offered 5 times this summer in regions around the state (Central, East, South, West). Schools are encouraged to send a leadership team to participate in professional learning experiences and receive resources that focus on:   (1) conducting purposeful learning walks and other forms of informal evaluation practices: (2) collecting evidence to support evaluation ratings; (3) providing actionable feedback to teachers; (4) conducting formal classroom observations; (5) writing the evaluation report; and (6) using data from evaluations to inform the identification and implementation of professional learning experiences for teachers. Insight Education Group, in collaboration with the Office of Leadership Development and School Improvement, will provide opportunities for the school leaders to review, analyze, and practice effective evaluation practices.

Consider selecting a region/location that is close to you although all 5 locations are open to administrators from across the state. There are still a few spaces available.

The link for registration, the dates and topics, is included below:

Save the Dates:  Feedback regarding our annual leadership conference this past March was very positive.  Lou D'Ambrosio, President-Elect,  is already planning for next year's conference to be held at the Hyatt Chesapeake in Cambridge MD.  Our tentative dates are March 7th - 9th.
