As MASC/MAHS Michigan Student Leadership continues striving to create world-class student leadership programs and events, we are also aware that these events take a great deal of time and planning from our member schools. We were very happy to announce that all dates and locations for our “Leadership Training Institutes” (formerly known as FTIs) have already been set for the fall of 2014 and were disbursed and posted last June.
The Michigan Department of Education has announced several details about the Spring 2015 state-developed summative assessments that will be the interim replacements for the old MEAP and MME. The 2014-15 K-12 budget bill required the MDE to develop a new summative assessment for use in Spring 2015. The announcement did not include any new details about the college entrance or work skills examination for 11th graders, but does outline a plan that will mean a great deal more testing for 11th grade students.
