Marie Curie’s, “Now is the time to understand more, so we fear less” is the philosophy the Biology Network will embrace as we understand more about the new Science Missouri Learning Expectations (MLEs) and how they relate to instruction and the new Biology EOC assessment. Join us as we begin the process of taking each Unit of Study (Structure & Function, Heredity, Evolution, and Ecology) and:
> Unpack the MLEs (identifying the 3-D learning and what skills and knowledge students need to know)
> Determine the priority and supporting expectations
> Revise or create new assessment items to reflect alignment, rigor and structure of the upcoming EOC assessment

Participants will leave the network with an understanding of our new Science Missouri Learning Expectations, how they relate to our new science assessment, and have crafted new assessments reflecting the alignment, rigor and structure of the upcoming assessment items.
> Collaborate in the revision of lessons

Lunch included.
Optional graduate credit is available

Audience: Federal Programs Coordinators, focus on Cohorts in Tiered Monitoring Process

Dates: 9/27/2018

This training will offer assistance to districts involved in or planning for the Federal Programs Tiered Monitoring process. Districts in Cohort 3 that are scheduled for the monitoring process in 2018 - 2019 will have the opportunity to gain information about time lines, processes, and submittal requirements. Other districts may attend for basic information, but they will not be able to submit any documentation into the ePeGs system. Districts may attend any or all of the sessions. You must register separately for each session.

September 27, Session 1 will focus on the introductory provisions and requirements for the Tiered Monitoring system. The session will focus on the Cohort 3 districts that are scheduled for the desk review component in 2018 - 2019. Any LEA interested in planning for their future monitoring can attend. Resources, documents, examples, and discussion will be included to assist district personnel in assembling the required evidence for the monitoring process. We will focus on the requirements for the October 15, 2018 submittal.

November 13, Session 2 will include three components. First, any October 2018 CAP (corrective action plans) will be reviewed and discussed with information for resubmittal. Second, the program will focus on specifics of the December 2018 submittal requirements. And third, forward planning for the February / April 2019 uploads will be addressed.

February 12, Session 3 As the end of the monitoring cycle approaches, deadlines for evidence gathering and planning for February/April 2019 uploads are scheduled. Assistance will be available to evaluate corrective action plans, and analyze information that is required for documentation. End of the year requirements for general federal programs planning and documentation will be addressed.
