Professional Development at MCESA
To provide schools and districts with a comprehensive framework based on current research and best practice, the Michigan Department of Education in conjunction with school improvement specialists and educators across the state, developed the Michigan School Improvement Framework. This framework can be individualized and used in multiple ways to develop, support and enhance school improvement plans. For example, the framework can be used to guide the development of a school improvement plan. It can also be used by buildings and districts to review and enhance existing improvement plans to reveal where plans match or differ from state-of-the-art school improvement practice.
The framework is organized in a typical curriculum development layout with strands, standards, and benchmarks. Within the framework, there are five strands or areas of general focus. Drilling down into the 12 standards are 26 benchmarks that further define the standards within each strand. MCESA’s professional development offerings are aligned to the strands of the School Improvement Framework to assist local educators and districts in identifying their PD needs, based on their school improvement plan.
