We do hope that you are enjoying the summer. We are excited to meet with you and your leadership team to discuss the expansion of the Maine Learning Technology Initiative (MLTI) to our high schools and career and technical education centers. All educators and administrators in grades 9-12 will receive professional development, equipment, and support, beginning with the 2007-2008 school year. This initiative is a critical next step in supporting Maine educators to prepare all secondary students for college, career, and citizenship in the 21st century.
The MLTI staff will be convening professional learning opportunities in all regions of the state throughout the 2007-2008 school year. Technology tools available through the MLTI Project will support state-wide literacy and numeracy efforts and promote 21st century strategies for improved learning opportunities for our students. Administrators and their school-based leadership teams will have opportunities to work with other high schools and career and technical education centers on planning and implementing literacy and numeracy programs connected to systemic secondary school redesign. These meetings assure that this is a learning initiative rather than simply a laptop distribution program.
Leadership teams will be convened in each of the 9 superintendent regions. These critical regional meetings will ensure understanding of the scope, context and agreements of this initiative. It is crucial that the building principal be present for the meeting to receive the administrative passwords for their building.
For these regional meetings, each leadership team should include 5 members: the principal, librarian, tech coordinator and two additional teacher-leaders (one of these should be designated as the MLTI stipended Lead Teacher). At this first meeting we will seek feedback from your team that will guide us as we plan meaningful, appropriate, and supportive professional development for your staff.
The agenda and locations are as follows:

We look forward to meeting with you and your leadership team to partner on this 21st Century journey!
