The MaSU Child Development Program’s Head Start and Early Head Start earned a perfect review when the Administration of Children and Families conducted a tri-annual monitoring in October. The monitoring team saw no areas of non-compliance or deficiencies. The comprehensive program serves more than 300 children across Traill, Steele, Griggs, Nelson, and Grand Forks Counties.
MaSU hosted 225 area elementary, junior high, and high school teachers, as well as Mayville State teacher candidates, for a professional development day on Jan. 20. The purpose of the training was to help the teachers explore ways in which they can adapt their classroom teaching to help meet the Common Core State Standards (CCSS).
MaSU has begun a year of celebrations leading up to the 125th anniversary of the university, which is officially November 2, 2014. Among the planned festivities is the grand opening of MaSU’s Edson and Margaret Larson Alumni and Leadership Center, which will be held in June as part of the annual MaSU Alumni Days activities.
