The LSP project team is now soliciting participation for numerous work groups and ongoing project activities beginning in the early fall. Most work groups would have a kick-off call, followed by a monthly virtual meeting. The purpose of the work groups is to identify best practices, articulate ongoing professional development needs, and make recommendations for any policies that might be useful during and after implementation of the new LSP. Some activity would take place via listservs, message boards and email in between meetings. Occasionally (1-2 times per year) there may be a need to meet in-person. The project will reimburse travel costs for required in-person meetings.
Please submit your interest by June 13th at 5:00 pm via this link: https://goo.gl/forms/tLCHXftrgBzHFXRr2 If you have any questions about participation, please contact Amy Beadle, the LSP Statewide Program Manager firstname.lastname@example.org
The LSP project is still in contract negotiations, with hopes of an agreement being in place as soon as July.
