MEMSPA: Leadership & Literacy Part 2 – Resources & Alignment

After creating a Literacy Action Plan for your school, you will need tangible resources to implement the steps and see the results. In this course, you will gather resources and align your Literacy Action Plan with school improvement and best practices, including Essential School-Wide and Center-Wide Literacy Practices. You will submit a collection of both professional development material and material resources that will enable the implementation of your previously created action plan. This is the second of three micro-credentials on your pathway to the digital Leadership & Literacy badge.

In this course, you will:

  • Explore resources to help design professional learning experiences that support school improvement,
  • Collect professional development material that will enable implementation of your Literacy Action Plan,
  • Correlate your resources with known best practices and your School Improvement Plan, and
  • Provide the evidence to earn your “Leadership & Literacy Part 2 – Resources & Alignment” micro-credential.

Limited Course Capacity

We’re sorry to inform you that we have reached capacity for several of our Semester 1 and Trimester 1 courses. You’ll notice when attempting to enroll students in our Student Learning Portal that some courses are unavailable. While we are no longer accepting new enrollments for these courses at this time, many courses continue to remain open for enrollment.

With many students across the state 100% remote, demand for our online courses is greater than ever before. Because every course we offer is taught by a Michigan-certified teacher, this high volume of enrollments has created capacity issues for our teachers who provide each and every student with individual feedback.

While the Michigan Virtual team anticipated and planned for significant increases in student enrollments this Fall, the increased demand we’ve experienced has been unprecedented. As a result, we are taking steps to hire even more part-and full-time teachers to support larger numbers of student enrollments for Semester 2 as well as for Trimester 2 and 3. 

For schools that still need online learning options this year, please fill out the form at the bottom of our virtual pathways page to meet with someone to discuss other solutions. While some of our teacher-led courses are full, we may still have the capacity to help you in upcoming terms or can discuss timing to implement a whole-school or collaborative program in which local teachers from your school/district use our online course content to teach students. We also have free course content and resources available for you to use.

We know this is an incredibly stressful time for all, and we’re sorry if the courses you’re looking for are unavailable. We never want to turn away a student who wants to learn from us. Our top concern, however, is student success, and we have a policy to not take on additional enrollments if we cannot guarantee that all students will have a quality online learning experience. 

We appreciate your patience and understanding as we navigate the unusually high volume of enrollments we are receiving.
