Dear OSPI and Early Learning Colleagues,
Thank you very much for your participation on the edTPA work group addressing pre-service candidates seeking to exit teacher preparation programs with multiple endorsements. We apologize for the large amount to material we began with and to our colleagues on the phone, as you did not have all the charts. Attached you will find electronic copies of the materials that we had on hand at the meeting. Please note that the Excel spreadsheet labeled alignment tables tab 4 has multiple sheets. Most of these documents can also be found at PESB’s Assessment website: http://assessment.pesb.wa.gov/home/wk-grps/align-tble-info
As I think we determined from our initial meeting today, this is compelling work that warrants further discussion. On behalf of PESB, both Patti and I look forward to continuing the conversation with you related to this topic.
Next steps: Jessica and Mea will meet to find a time for us to reconvene the group and provide for enough time to develop the recommendations for the Board. We will most likely need at least ½ a day to ensure we have the time to adequately review this work and develop recommendations.
Once again thank you for your participation today,
