SLO 2.5: Follow-Up Session
April 10, 2017 @ 8:30 am - 2:30 pm
SLO Trainings for SAUs
Maine DOE is once again proud to offer Student Learning Objective (SLO) training to school administrative units (SAUs) to help support of the development of Performance Evaluation and Professional Growth (PEPG) systems. These regional trainings will be available in Presque Isle this April. Student Learning Objectives are a part of the newly required PEPG systems for educators.
For the 2016-2017 school year, Maine DOE has continued its partnership with the Northeast Comprehensive Center to offer training and support to effectively implement these important measures of student learning and growth. Two concurrent sessions will be offered: One introducing participants to an SLO process, the second one delving deeply into the SLO process focusing on data, quality assessments and target setting.
SAU teams and other key staff who lead and support SLO work as a part of PEPG systems can expect to receive:
- Research-based approaches to SLO implementation
- Turn-key activities to facilitate with your SAU
- Electronic resources to support districts in their SLO implementation
Level 2.5: Follow-Up Session*
Focus: The follow-up session will go deeper into the SLO process, with a focus on data, quality assessments, and target setting.
- Reviewing assessments to determine levels of quality (see note below).
- Setting student growth targets
- Leveraging data obtained in an SLO process
