MSIP 5 Comment Period to Begin October 3
Colleagues, a 30-day comment period will begin October 3 on the revised MSIP 5 standards
. You can read more about the changes adopted in August at http://dese.mo.gov/qs/documents/msip5-major-changes.pdf
Just so you know, process and resources standards are now included in MSIP 5, although I heard at a meeting for superintendents this morning that districts will not be held accountable for these until the funding formula is fully funded. Even so, these standards will give us some support for continuing to build strong school library programs.
MSIP 5 will require annual reports, but if school districts are in good shape, no five-year visit. MSIP 5 is one of several DESE initiatives that point school districts toward DESE's goal of Top 10 by 20. How do we school librarians help to reach that goal?
