Conference Sessions

For each session, participants are expected to bring the “essential learning” required to demonstrate proficiency, copies of the content standards, and a copy of an assessment that you have used.   In order to produce something that can be used immediately, it would be advantageous to bring 1st quarter essential learning, standards and assessment.

In order to present a conference to meet the needs of the participants, there will be 5 distinct groups organized and designed to meet a variety of assessment needs:

 

GROUP 1PRIMARY TEACHERS – Pre-K – 2ND Grade.  Elementary Special Education Teachers and ELL Teachers will join this group or Group 2 – INTERMEDIATE TEACHERS – 3rd Grade – 5th Grade.  Day 2 of the session will focus on Math assessments.
