a) Question: What does a collaborative meeting entail?
Collaboration time includes discussion of effective instructional strategies, curriculum planning and lesson development, data analysis and formative assessment, or items related to site goals. Planning for early release will be developed in consultation with the site leadership team. TK-12 collaboration meetings shall not exceed 60 minutes. Collaborations as an “extra staff meeting” do not follow the spirit of this language. Teachers are required to remain on site unless directed otherwise [MCS-MTA Contract 2017-2020].
b) Question: Are notes from the collaborative meeting required?
Advice: No. Collaboration notes are not required from teachers.
