September 2016 Regional Meetings
9:00 -11:30 All Locations
Most districts are beginning the process of curriculum revision to align with the “new” Missouri Learning Standards that were approved by the State Board and posted on the DESE webpage on April 19. This means that Curriculum Leaders have diligently worked to develop well – thought - through plans for what that work will entail.
The upcoming SMCAA meeting will focus not only on sharing what the components of those plans will need to include, but also aspects of the difficult task of creating and maintaining ‘Relationships/Culture/Community’ among and within our school/district staff.
This will be a meeting designed to hear about the challenges being faced by most districts and action plans others have created for meeting those challenges. Come prepared to listen, share, and learn!
**REMINDER** – Your SMCAA 2016-2017 Membership entitles you to one free registration to the fall and winter regional meetings. However, you must still register to attend, please put 0 in the Total Cost and PO fields.

Conducting You Own Curriculum Audit
The single most important step toward change is the first one. It is the one that begins the journey. Thus, using our internal GPS, it is essential that we first determine 'Where We Are'. This requires that we 'Face Our Own Reality' before we begin to chart a course for ‘where we will need to go’ and ‘what we are willing to do to get there,’ if we are to reach our goal of preparing every student with the 21st century skills they will need to be ready to succeed!
This 2-Day workshop will provide Curriculum Leaders with tools to help them determine if there is congruence among the written, taught and tested curriculum in their schools; including how to conduct a Readiness Audit to determine how prepared their district is to perform the work and adjust to changes in curriculum development and instructional strategies that will need to be done over the next couple of years.
