Important College Board and PSAT Info at EdCon

In the January 25, 2018 edition of MDE's Spotlight on Assessment newsletter, the Department announced that PSAT 8/9 would replace the 8th grade M-STEP for ELA and Math, beginning next year. (There will still be M-STEP for Social Studies and Science.) This is a significant shift, and many Middle Level principals are unaware of this change and how it will impact them next school year.

This Week in Politics in 5 Sentences (or Fewer)

Next week that committee will begin the process of reconciling their proposal with the legislation that already passed the Senate…the committee's timeline for reporting out a reconciled package currently has them reporting out legislation before the end of May.
