Here’s the scoop for the week

Office of the Legislative Auditor request:

I have been asked to share the following information with you along with the opportunity to provide input:

“The Office of the Legislative Auditor is conducting an evaluation of the Minnesota Department of Education’s role in addressing the achievement gap.  OLA has established an internet site for people to give us input on this year’s evaluation projects, including the achievement-gap evaluation. Here is the link

Example of Equity Policy work:

The link below was shared with me by MASA/MASE member and Southern Plains Education Cooperative Director Sarah Mittelstadt. The information in the link along with responses in the Frequently Asked Questions section might be helpful if you are getting questions about your school district’s equity work. Thank you, Sarah!

Leadership Matters:

Remember the difference between a boss and a leader; a boss says "Go!" - a leader says "Let's go!" - E.M. Kelly
