Training Calendar for Network Teams
The State Education Department has released its calendar of trainings for Network Teams and Network Team Equivalents.
The trainings will build the knowledge of Network Team members on implementation of Common Core Learning Standards and teacher and principal evaluations, two core components of the Regents Reform Agenda.
Deputy Commissioner Ken Slentz notes that the trainings are optional, and while SED will cover as much of the travel costs as possible, he does anticipate that there will be a local share. Also, though the teacher and principal evaluation trainings will provide crucial information about district- and school-level implementation, they do not have a bearing on certification of teacher/leader evaluation trainers. Certification processes will be determined by local BOCES, districts, and charter schools as stated in the APPR regulations.
