The Department of Education is performing a review of the Maine Learning Results for Career and Education Development and has openings on its writing team. The purpose of the writing team is to revise the current standards, based on guidance provided from a steering committee. For more information about the standards review process, check the new Maine DOE standards revision website.
The team will serve as a representative sample of Maine K-12 teachers and school counselors actively working across geographic locations in Maine. While all interested educators are encouraged to participate, those who work in K-8 grades or have experience explicitly teaching Maine’s Guiding Principles are highly encouraged to apply. Also, to help ensure that the geographic diversity of our state is represented, those who teach in the following counties: Hancock, Knox, Lincoln, Oxford, Piscataquis, or Sagadahoc are strongly encouraged to apply.
We are hoping as many of the writing team members as possible will be able to participate on Sept. 11th and/or 12th so we may have rich conversations from a variety of perspectives across Maine. These dialogues will inform and set the direction for any remaining work on Sept. 17, 25, 26. We understand the challenges when school is in session, and are grateful for any amount of days writing team members are able to participate at our meetings in Augusta.
Participants will receive contact hours for time worked, be reimbursed for travel costs, and be provided continental breakfast and lunch for participants of in-person meetings.
If you are interested in participating, please complete this short survey by 4:00 pm Tuesday, September 10th to be considered. For more information, contact Maine DOE Career and Education Development Specialist, Diana Doiron at 207-624-6823 or firstname.lastname@example.org
