What’s the Road Block?
S
We have the votes in the Senate
S
The only opposition to the bill is from
members of the Senate Education
Committee, and that is loosening.
S
The perceived problems:
S State assessment
S Loss of local control
S Cost to the state
S
The level of support likely means that
the bills will move with or without the
committee, but we prefer WITH.
Lame Duck 2014
S
Bills likely to be amended to push out
timeline for using state assessment data
for 1 year (until 2016-17).
S
Bills already allow districts until the
end of 2015-16 to:
S Choose a framework
S Get trained
S Fully implement the new system
S
MDE must develop a spending plan
before the money is released.
What Will Things Look Like?
S Breakdown for 2014-15 and
2015-16 the same.
S 25% student growth, no more,
no less.
S Have through 2015-16 to
implement framework
S Sec 1249 provisions you are
familiar with take effect:
S Multiple observations
S At least 1 unscheduled
S Mid-year progress report for
ME/I T’s
Punchlist for 2014-15
S Ignore the BandAid and continue moving forward:
S Multiple observations (at least one unscheduled)
S Mid-year progress reports for less than effective teachers
S Growth measures used consistently for “similarly situated
educators”
S Build robust local growth measures:
S Student Learning Objectives
S Locally-developed assessments
S Vendor-Developed assessments
A Few Thoughts on Growth
S Following the law…
S Current law: growth must be based “at least in part” on state assessments.
S HB 5223: no requirement to use state assessment data until 2016-17
S The Result: local districts have almost complete autonomy to choose
how to apply state growth data.
S Some Practical Recommendations
S Keep the % small…very small…
S Apply it consistently or even identically for all teachers
S Don’t let it become a decision making factor
S An example: use building-wide scores to inform your building level
literacy goal and hold all teacher accountable equally at 1% of their
total evaluation

Michigan Merit
Curriculum Changes
S
Core MMC Requirements
S Algebra II: Students may fulfill this requirement w/ a course or courses
which cover the MME assessed benchmarks of Algebra II
S World Language:
S 2 credits of grade-appropriate language anytime during grades K-12.
S Classes of 2015-2020: May fulfill 1 credit of the 2 credits by successfully
completing a formal CTE program or an additional arts course.
S Science:
S 3 credits still required for most students. Biology required for all students.
S Students have a choice of chemistry, physics, anatomy, ag science, or a
course that covers the MME assessed benchmarks of chemistry or physics
S May substitute a formal CTE program (regardless of content) for 3rd credit of
science.
Personal Curriculum
S Schools required to write a PC if requested by the parent (or by the
student if he or she is 18 years old or an emancipated minor). The
school would still have the right to reject the PC once written.
S Three simplifications were made to the PC process.
S Only one school employee would now have to be involved.
S No requirement for an in-person meeting to develop the PC.
S No requirement for quarterly progress meetings.
S Under a PC students/schools may now make additional modifications:
S For Algebra II: students may substitute technical math or may take a
class that covers at least the MME assessed benchmarks of algebra 2.
S Students may substitute CTE courses (regardless of content) for up to 1
credit of social studies; 1 credit of health and physical education; and 1
credit of visual, performing, or applied arts.
Personal Curriculum (contd.)
S The law would now expressly state that no limitation may be put
on the number of PCs a school is allowed to have.
S Schools must notify parents and students annually that they are
entitled to pursue a PC. This may be done in the school
newsletter, handbook, or similar communication sent to the
pupil's home.
S Pupils must be informed of the option to take CTE during their
education development plan (EDP) development process.
Teacher & Admin Cert

S July 17, 2014
S MDE Holds Review of Teacher/Admin Cert
Requirements/Rules
S http://mymassp.com/content/mde_holds_review_teacheradm
in_cert_requirementsrules
S September 29, 2014
Things You May Not Know…
S Teachers may renew a Professional certificate using district
provided professional development (DPPD), but not a
provisional certificate. You must accumulate either 6 credit
hours or 150 state continuing education clock hours
(SCECHs) to renew of provisional certificate.
S The continuing education requirements for administrators to
renew their certification are: 6 semester credit hours or 150
SCECHs every 5 years, OR hold a valid professional
teaching certificate. NOTE: Administrators cannot use DPPD to
renew a certificate, even a teaching certificate. MDE has ruled that
only teachers are eligible to use DPPD for certificate renewals.
Election Post-Mortem
It’s kinda like CSI, but with sausage…
S
Recapping the Major Results
S
Governor: Rick Snyder reelected
S
House: R’s unseated 2 D’s & won 2
open seats for a 63-47 majority
S New Speaker of the House Kevin
Cotter (R-Mt. Pleasant), who was
the more conservative choice.
S
Senate: R’s turned a 26-12
supermajority into a 27-11
übermajority,
S
State Board: D’s kept both open seats
to retain a 6-2 majority
S
Supreme Court: Richard Bernstein
won & both current justices reelected,
giving R’s a 4-3 majority.
Implications
S Governor Snyder sees this election as a mandate to push forward
with his "reinvention" agenda.
S The next Republican legislature is going to be more conservative
in its leanings than the last, BUT…
S Huge margins mean the Republicans can, and thus have to,
govern. The massive scope of the Republican victories could
ironically moderate their governance.
S The Dems are Expect the Dems to vocally oppose pretty much
everything the Republicans do for the next two years.
Specific Issues for 2015

S Content Standards and the Common Core
S School Accountability Systems
