MSD Professional Development Plan 2016-17
The Millbrae School District, other California districts and the California Department of Education are participating in Common Core State Standards.
Educational standards describe what students should know and be able to do in each subject in each grade. In California, the State Board of Education decides on the standards for all students, from kindergarten through high school. The California Department of Education helps schools make sure that all students are meeting the standards.
Common standards allow for collaboration among states on best practices and professional development. It also helps students whose families move from state-to-state to minimize the adjustment at school.
Our Common Core Strategic Planning Team comprised of our district and school administrators, teacher representatives from each school site, Curriculum Advisory Council, and our MEA President aided in developing Millbrae's CCSS Strategic Plan.
