Moving Forward: What Needs to Be Done and What Works


We are moving forward into a new school year with new challenges and goals to set. Missouri is about to begin the MSIP 6 Cycle with a bigger focus on student growth and on quality instruction, including the science of reading.  DESE’s Success-Ready Students Work Group (SRSWG) spent the spring developing a framework for  Moving Forward to Competency Based Learning. How will this impact the work in districts moving forward?   

Join curriculum leaders and educators from around the state at the annual SMCAA Fall conference to hear how districts are moving forward, including ideas for curriculum development, working with assessments, and instructional ideas.  SMCAA will have  Dr. Joe SanFelippo, author of Hacking Leadership and Leading From Where You Are and Superintendent of Fall Creek School District as the keynote speaker, along with an address from DESE commissioner Dr. Margie Vandeven and MSIP, assessment and curriculum updates from DESE.  We have quality presenters who will share how to Move Forward into the 22-23 school year and beyond.
