what else you find available and useful....so that we might add it to our
work....thanks....Kathleen Bergin, CEISMC, Georgia Institute of Technology

The Maryland State Department of Education assists local school districts
in implementing Education That Is Multicultual Regulations that require
Five Year Plans to address curriculum, instruction, and staff development
concerns. I am looking for examples of self-assessment instruments that
local districts might be able to adapt to evaluate inclusion of
multicultural, gender-fair practices in their plans. Does anyone have
sample assessment tools or assessment guidelines? Please let me know
through edequity or by calling me at 410-767-0428 or faxing me at
410-767-0431, Thanks and Happy New Year! Linda Shevitz, Maryland State
Department of Education (shev3@radix.net).
