This session provides LGBTQ-inclusive curriculum resources for educators to facilitate in their classrooms that are developmentally appropriate for latency-age children. The Regulations for the Massachusetts Student Rights Law state that "all public school systems shall, through their curricula, encourage respect for the human and civil rights of all individuals regardless of race, color, sex, gender identity, religion, national origin or sexual orientation." The Safe Schools Program is proud to offer curricula materials to support educators in providing LGBTQ-inclusive lessons. Participants will reflect on their current curriculum maps and lesson plans, identifying ways to incorporate conversations about Identity, Relationships, Community, Self-Awareness and Respect for others in a developmentally appropriate way.
Are you planning on taking the Communications and Literacy Skills MTEL test? If so, the EPS has a limited number of MTEL test vouchers for these two exams. If you plan to register for an upcoming test, please email Director of Remote Learning and Instruction Anne Auger as soon as possible. You have to register for a test by March 22, 2023 to use the voucher, even if your actual test date is later in 2023.

The Everett Public Schools has been awarded a grant called “Building Capacity for High Quality Instruction through EdTech.” With this funding, we have created six paid opportunities for interested educators who will be compensated to receive a series of intense, focused, and interactive professional development on technology integration and train-the-trainers professional development, and andragogy.  The TILs will meet with school Principals to discuss how technology integration can support their school’s individual school improvement plan.

The TILs will receive credentials to conduct train-the-trainer professional development on technology platforms, and they will provide training during the district’ first-year teacher orientation and induction sessions.
