Measuring Success: How Student Learning Objectives Transform Learning, Leading, and Teacher Excellence
The Office of the State Superintendent of Education (OSSE) invites local education agency (LEA) teams to join us for the Student Learning Objectives (SLO) Summer Intensive. The four-day symposium will include professional development sessions delivered by national SLO experts. There will be an emphasis on how SLOs positively impact student learning and teacher excellence, and guidance on developing student goals, setting targets, evaluating progress, and measuring success will be provided. Teams will also have daily in-depth planning time and opportunities for support and feedback. If you plan on implementing Student Learning Objectives during the 2014-2015 school year, or if you would like to refine your current teacher evaluation process, we encourage you to join us!
Stipends will be awarded to each LEA in attendance. Instructional teams of 3 to 5 members are encouraged to apply: SLO Summer Intensive Application. Only instructional teams will be considered. Applications are due by June 27 and applicants will hear back within 48 hours of submission.
