September 2014 Regional Meeting

Considering where things ‘currently’ stand in regard to Missouri Learning Standards, It is easy to say and harder to respond to:
                                    ............."Why work on curriculum now?”

Yet MSIP5 requires:

I-5   The local board of education adopts and district staff implements, review, and revise a rigorous, guaranteed, and viable curriculum for all instructional courses and programs.

The fall regional meetings will provide an opportunity to discuss:

• How districts are adjusting (or not) their plans for curriculum development.

• How the current uncertainties can actually provide valuable opportunities.

• The real value of the Vertical Team today/tomorrow.
