 This workshop is open to Independent and Private School Forum (IPSF) members only. If you are interested in becoming a member, please visit IPSF.ca

Part 1 – Tuesday, October 9, 2018, 9:00AM – 3:00 PM:

Together with the school representatives, the facilitator will briefly visit the Readiness Reviews prepared by each school to identify themes and challenges. A copy of the Readiness Review checklist will be distributed so that the schools can easily identify those items and procedures that the AdvancED representatives will look for; and we will engage in a discussion on what constitutes quality evidence, with examples provided by the facilitator. At the end of this discussion, we will select spring 2019 dates for Readiness Reviews.

This workshop will also include a brief overview of the newest eProve platform: strategies. This is the tool that schools may use to set their vision, mission, goals, and create the School Improvement Plan.

IMPORTANT: Please bring your laptop and Readiness Diagnostic with you to the workshop!

Part 2 -Wednesday, October 10, 2018, 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM:

Approximately three hours will be dedicated to an overview and discussion of the AdvancED STEM Program and the requirements to obtain certification.
