Announcing Technical Assistance Sessions on Perkins IV Five-Year Local Plan Development
The Massachusetts Department of Education is pleased to announce three (identical) technical assistance sessions on the development of Perkins IV Five-Year Local Plans. The expectation is that two individuals from each district will attend one of the sessions together in order to acquire technical assistance that they will in turn share with the team in the district that is responsible for developing the Perkins IV Five-Year Local Plan. While the Department would love to have the entire team or more than two individuals attend, space is limited by host site capacity and we want to be fair and accommodate all districts.
