3 year process - Chair Elect, Chair, Past Chair

- Our midyear event will continue the momentum that was established in September and reinforced in October at the ESUCC/NDE Collaborative Planning Session. During this Event, we will hear from NDE regarding four current initiatives that impact Nebraska's schools: 1) Teacher/Principal Evaluation, 2) Statewide Longitudinal Data System, 3) Assessment--C4L and Writing, and 4) Curriculum--Standards and 21st Century Skills. We will process these presentations through individual reflection, table group, and Affiliate-level conversations in order to define our roles in working with NDE to provide consistent statewide support. This will take us to Day 2 when we will develop action plans by cross-affiliate groups.
