Orientation to SLOs for Teachers

June 30-Aug. 1, various locations statewide

The deadline to register is April 18.

For each training location (eg., Mobridge, Watertown), participants will be divided according to grade level and content area. For example, all 4th grade teachers will meet in one location, while all 6-12 social studies teachers will meet in another. This has been done to encourage optimal collaboration and learning. Teachers will learn the basics of setting appropriate SLOs and how to identify appropriate measures to assess progress. There will also be time to practice writing quality SLOs with peers.

Registration is now available via the department’s online registration system. Search for “SLO.” (NOTE: Site is best viewed in a browser other than Internet Explorer.)
