🕳 The 2020 MASA/MASE Spring Conference
Minnesota Administrators for Special Education (MASE) and
Minnesota Association of School Administrators (MASA) present...
MN Grown, MN Strong
March 12-13 • Minneapolis Marriott Northwest • Brooklyn Park, MN
One great challenge for our members at MASA and MASE is to bridge the space between our visions for the future of Minnesota's schools and the realities of today. We live in times of rapid, pervasive change—not just in the technology that affects every part of our lives, but in the fabric of our communities, the expectations of public organizations, the impacts of economic shift, and the interaction of diverse communities locally and globally. As school leaders, we are tasked with preparing students for futures of which we cannot dream. But leaders are learners, and we learn best from one another. It is that collegial support that provides a framework of best practice, demonstrating that “Minnesota Grown means Minnesota Strong.” Join your colleagues this spring and explore the best of leadership practice here in Minnesota!

🕳 MDE: Professional Learning Community (PLC) – Spring 2020 Workshops
Are you looking to narrow the focus and determine what matters most? This session will focus on learning and results. During the session, teams will explore three big ideas and four critical questions that guide the work of highly effective learning teams. Participants will learn about a guaranteed and viable curriculum and begin identifying learning targets for use in assessment. Participants will also examine ways to use data to focus on learning outcomes.
Audience: It is highly recommended that the districts/charters send a team of PLC facilitators, Q Comp coordinators, and administrators (we highly recommend that your full team of PLC facilitators attend.)
