For Principals: Idaho Core Implementation Working Group Led by Mel Riddile

Work will continue in 2014-15, with Dr. Riddile continuing to support your ongoing Idaho Core implementation efforts. One focus this year will be highlighting Idaho bright spots through site visits to Idaho Schools. The Idaho Core Standards means change management for all schools: transforming instructional design and delivery while building a positive culture of learning are tall orders. The SDE is pleased to announce a series of sequenced workshop dates over the coming school year focused on strategic planning and implementation problem solving on an ongoing basis. These dates are not repeats of the same single day workshop but hands on evolving work sessions tailored to the unique needs of the participants. You can still join this ongoing work that will continue into school year 2014-2015.
