Leadership for Excellence in Science Institute
2 Days; 2 OSL; 20 SEMIs — In the high-tech, high-skills world of the 21st Century, students need science skills, knowledge, and understanding to succeed as workers and citizens. But today, U.S. science achievement ranks near the bottom of world rankings and most principals are ill-prepared to improve it. Principals do not need to be science experts to dramatically improve science achievement in their schools, but they do need to become strong instructional leaders. This requires principals to develop skills in identifying and implementing instructional best practices, helping teachers work collaboratively, providing high-quality professional development, and observing and evaluating teachers in ways that ensure improvement in science instruction. The Institute helps school leaders address many of the key challenges in science education. During the Institute, principals address the beliefs, behaviors, and consequences that characterize the present circumstances for science education in their schools; determine potential reforms and best practice models that can strengthen science education in their schools; identify, implement, and support instructional activities for science education by using creative and innovative instructional leadership and distributed leadership principles; and plan next steps and appropriate leadership actions that emphasize clear expectations, high standards, effort, and achievement.
Leadership for Students with Disabilities
2 Days; 2 OSL; 20 SEMIs — Virtually all school leaders face significant challenges in their efforts to help students with disabilities achieve high standards of proficiency. As a result, most states report an achievement gap on state tests of 30 percentage points or more between special education and general education students. Unfortunately, most special education trainings for principals start and end with a focus on legal compliance and do not give leaders what they really need: practical solutions that will result in higher achievement for all students. This Institute gives principals the capacity to develop and implement a school wide action plan that puts students with disabilities on a solid path toward proficiency and productive lives. Participants will conduct in-depth gap analyses of their schools. The Institute then gives principals all the tools they need to succeed in this challenging area of school leadership. Your principals will return to school with the ability to evaluate their school or district’s ability to support a complete and inclusive program for students with disabilities and assess the benefits and risks of different approaches to instruction and inclusion. Leaders will learn more about effective programs for prevention and intervention, as well as the acceleration of students with disabilities. The leaders will also develop an action for improving instruction for students with disabilities that can be implemented immediately. This course is offered by the University of Mississippi Institute for Education and Workforce Development.

NISL’s Early Childhood Executive Leadership (ECEL)
5 Days; 50 SEMIs; 5 OSL — Institute bridges the gaps between early learning programs and K-12 schools. Leaders of programs serving children from birth through age 8 learn together as part of a powerful professional development experience including application of the latest brain development research; effective program design and strategies; family engagement and multi-generational services; and action learning projects that improve classroom quality, strengthen family engagement, and integrate birth through third grade systems. The Institute is designed to increase the capacity of leaders in early childhood education programs to understand and connect the many public and private systems that are focused on the growth, development, and education of our children from birth through age 8. The work that participants will engage in concentrates on what early childhood leaders need to know and be able to do in order to provide guidance and direction on sustained instructional improvement. The improved practices in turn will lead to the desired outcomes in physical, emotional, social, cognitive, aesthetic, and attention areas. Our intent is for participants to develop insights into what a connected system of systems looks like and what the contributions such a system can and will make to communities of learners-including providers, teachers, parents/guardians, school leaders, and students (birth to age 8). Working together, participants will acquire the deep knowledge and leadership skills needed to identify and navigate with success through the labyrinthine challenges and opportunities that confront Pre-K through K-3 educators and service providers as they deliver coordinated, aligned, and cohesive learning experiences for students and their families. While the Institute will be driven by urgency to work with all children, there will be an especially intense and targeted look at what an aligned system might mean for children coming from circumstances of poverty – the often grinding poverty that can hold children back from developing as rapidly and as fully as possible. This course is offered by the University of Mississippi Institute for Education and Workforce Development.

SATP RE-TESTERS: Acceleration of Teaching and Learning by Design
1 Day — Are there students in your school or district that have passed course work, but fail to graduate because of the Subject Area Assessment? Some students need more than test-taking strategies, content tutoring, and double-blocked courses of study. Schools across the state spend a great deal of time and money working with SATP Re-testers to no avail. If extra time and support fails to get results for students, perhaps it is time to guide students in a process of intentional thinking and problem solving using specific literacy strategies to accelerate performance. Acceleration by design is a systematic process where students use their prior SATP data, elements of existing research to accelerate understanding, and plan a cohesive and coherent process to meet the state standards. This course is offered by the University of Mississippi Institute for Education and Workforce Development. For additional information (i.e, dates, SEMIs, CEUs, fees), please contact Dr. Susan Rucker at 662-915-2707, 662-701-8150 or email@example.com.
Student Support Services
1 Day — We will guide your school counselors through a process of tying their program goals to the larger goals of their individual schools with each school counselor setting goals each year, tracking them, and reporting results at the end of the year to their school administrative team. Through facilitation we will lead your team of school counselors to create an Action Plan and provide a yearlong program of professional learning that would align with goals to improve students’ achievement as schools prepare for the rigor of Common Core State Standards and include implementation of the MDE School Counseling Curriculum Framework. Some of the specific topics covered include the benefits of a comprehensive counseling program; reviewing Program Standards according to MDE Counselors Curriculum, 2011; components of a comprehensive school counseling program; and a school counselor evaluation and performance appraisal tool. This course is offered by the University of Mississippi Institute for Education and Workforce Development.

Resources for Administrators and Teachers
Are You Ready For The CC Assessments?
This workshop will deal with improving the rigor in the classroom. Rigor, the level of cognitive complexity of expected learning, is one of the top indicators of a student's potential to graduate from high school ready to earn a college degree or successfully enter the workforce. It must be a part of the school curriculum, and recognized and expected by school leaders. It can be directly examined at the classroom level in lesson plans, unit plans and course content. It can be assessed in teacher assignments and student work, in rubrics, and in formative and summative assessments. It is in the tight alignment of the CCSS elements to challenging standards that evidence of high levels of rigor can be found (East Mississippi Center for Educational Development; www.emced.org; Free for members and $100 for non-members; .6 CEUs, 5 SEMIs)

Teaching Dyslexic Students
According to the International Dyslexia Association, many people, perhaps as many as 15-20% of the population as a whole, have some of the symptoms of dyslexia, including slow or inaccurate reading, poor spelling, poor writing, or mixing up similar words. Not all of these will qualify for special education, but they are likely to struggle with many aspects of academic learning and are likely to benefit from systematic, explicit, instruction in reading, writing, and language.
According to the U.S. Census Bureau in 2008, Mississippi’s estimated population is 2,938,618. If only 15% of the population of Mississippi is dyslexic approximately 440,792 people are affected by dyslexia in our state alone. According to the Mississippi Assessment and Accountability Reporting System, 491,194 students were enrolled in Mississippi public schools during the 2008-2009 school year. If only 15% of this population is dyslexic approximately 73,679 students in Mississippi are affected by dyslexic. These statistics are staggering.
As educators, we must do everything in our power to educate ourselves about this specific learning disability, so we can better educate this population and prevent them from becoming hopeless and dropping out of school. With the right interventions and accommodations, dyslexic students can become very successful in the classroom and in turn become productive and outstanding members of society. The dyslexia workshop will cover a variety of topics of interest for educators working with this population of students. Come learn about the basics of dyslexia, the latest scientific research, the right remediation programs to use for reading and spelling, creative scheduling and using staff to implement the program, classroom accommodations, the latest technology, dyslexia in the RtI and how to address it in each of the three tiers, and helping dyslexic students struggling with math.
