MDE Now Issuing Experienced-Based Certs to "Grandparented" Administrators

Beginning September 1, 2018, all Michigan school administrators are required to hold a School Administrator Certificate or School Administrator Permit – even if they are currently "grandparented." This is not a change in the law, but a change in practice by MDE designed to support schools and clear up confusion about compliance. MDE has already begun issuing Experience-Based School Administrator Certificates. The application, completed through the Michigan Online Educator Certification System (MOECS), is relatively fast and easy, and FREE to administrators who complete the process prior to September 1, 2018.

Continuing the series of highlighting activities and resources that take place in MASSP's recently updated Data Analysis Protocol 2.0 Workshop, participants will be able to explore a great instructional staff resource that highlights both Math and ELA content related to the SAT. This resource was developed by MAISA and GELN organizations through their SAT Task Force initiative. During the activity, participants will access the content and review the links, websites, and other curated articles for teachers to use with students before reflecting on how to implement the resources back in their buildings.

Testing Tips and Important Information from the College Board

By now, schools should have received Supervisor planning kits, testing manuals for all staff, and secure testing materials for PSAT and SAT. But you may still have questions. The College Board recently provided a one-hour webinar with very timely information for Test Center Supervisors, including information about rosters for special ed students. The webinar was recorded, and provided a variety of answers to questions posed from the field.

Michigan Talent Pool Still Accepting Recommendations (MEMO #045-18)

The Michigan Department of Education (MDE) is still seeking recommendations for the Michigan Talent Pool, a running list of emerging leaders consisting of distinguished teachers and principals. These educators may be considered for membership on advisory boards and task forces, as well as candidates for recognition programs.

The Michigan Talent Pool is currently lacking representation from educators relatively new to the profession who demonstrate unusual instructional and leadership ability. Such persons exhibit strong potential for professional leadership and inspiring presence that impacts students, colleagues, and community.
