Our next MASE TURN event is scheduled for June 23-24, 2017 at the Deep River Event Center located at 606 Millwood School Road, Greensboro, NC. We will continue to collaboratively examine ways to plan and integrate the implementation of rigorous and challenging student learning and teaching standards, practices and programs. We will also explore new approaches in developing conditions for effective teaching and learning. Our agenda will feature local, state and national examples of promising practices and policies that focus on this joint work.

Our MASE TURN teams represent union & teacher leaders, school & district administrators and board members who are working jointly to plan and implement teacher evaluation systems and the common core standards to improve teaching and learning. We continue to encourage and support our MASE TURN teams to jointly develop, implement and share their efforts. Additionally, we will work with teams to develop action plans in order to facilitate the work in our school communities.

Our MASE TURN locals are encouraged to invite representatives from their district and school administration, boards of education and community leaders to join their teams for this two-day forum. Our conference will begin at 9:00 am on Friday, June 23 and will conclude by noon on Saturday, June 24.
