During the 2016-2017 school year 10 elementary schools are committed to field testing the new progress report in MiSiS. The Division of Instruction is designing professional development modules on the topics related to the progress report: history, purpose, parent, student, teacher and administrator roles, grading practices, standards-based grading, technology, and job aides. In addition to the PD modules being created, other resources are under development, these include facilitator guides, parent handbook, teacher handbook, FAQ, a webpage, public service announcements, focus groups, surveys, and revised policy documents. We have identified additional support personnel to assist these schools with facilitation of activities.
We will provide you with frequent updates and notifications throughout the year regarding the progress being made. We welcome your input and, should you have any questions, please call Katie McGrath, Director, Elementary Instruction at (213) 241-5333 or Katie.McGrath@lausd.net.
