Sheridan is playing host to the State Board of Education this week. State Superintendent of Public Instruction, Cindy Hill, stopped by Sheridan Media studios Monday morning to discuss some of the issues being addressed at the two-day meeting.
She says they'll discuss what is going well, but also what areas need improvement. On the latter, she describes them as “measures we can trust." First, she says.
Hill says that the Wyoming Legislature also has asked the State Board to look at MAP Testing and improving upon a good assessment system on student performance.
Another area at which they are looking is instructional leadership, specifically capturing moment teachers and students are working in the classroom. She explains.
Ms. Hill says she will hold a Principal Academy in August, as well as instructional leadership at the Wyoming school districts' superintendent level.
The State Board of Education spring meeting continues through this afternoon at the Sheridan Holiday Inn.
Tomorrow, we'll hear Superintendent Hill's opinion about the 2011 Legislative Session.
