Hello Everyone (Note: If you sent me an email with an updated Literacy Director, the file that information was updated in was corrupted; therefore, I will need that information again and please forward this email to the correct individual. I apologize for the inconvenience.),

We will be holding the September State Literacy Directors Meeting on Tuesday, September 9th from 9:00 am to 12:00 noon. This first meeting of the school year will be combined with both Elementary and Secondary Literacy Directors. The meeting will be held here at the Utah State Office of Education in the Board Room.

The agenda items we are planning to discuss are:

1.       SAGE Update from both elementary and secondary assessment specialists;

2.       Status of Utah Compose and Formative SAGE System;

3.       Resources and Open Education through USOE Creative Commons;

4.       Timeline for Standards Revisions;

5.       Collaborative learning on What works in writing instruction; and,

6.       Learning Needs and Resource Assessment for future planning to meet district K-12 literacy needs.

Additionally, there will be a couple topics specific to elementary that we will cover at the end.  These will include an update from Sheri Ebert on K-3 Reading Achievement goals and discussion surrounding SLOs for K-2.

In an effort to go paperless, we will post all handouts electronically online in lieu of paper copies.  If you want hard copies, please plan on printing those prior to the meeting.  All materials will be posted by Monday, September 8 at noon at http://schools.utah.gov/CURR/langartelem/Actions-and-Programs/State-Literacy-Meetings.aspx.

The meeting will be available through Adobe Connect for those who aren't able to make the trip to the USOE-- connect.schools.utah.gov/slc<http://connect.schools.utah.gov/slc>.
