Proposed Bylaw Change

The MAAP Board is proposed a Bylaw change which was presented and approved at the MAAP Annual Meeting on Thursday, February 6th, 2020 at the DECC in Duluth.

Standing Rules, Number 6 Guidelines, Section 3. Contracts: In order to remain fiscally responsible, all MAAP Board Committee’s should engage in a competitive pricing process before signing any contracts. All contracts above $1,000 should have board approval. It was recommended that language reflecting these changes be proposed as By-Law change at the next Annual meeting.

Here are the new Bylaws:

Resources for MAAP Members

By Krissy Wright

Hello MAAP Family,

In light of the mandated school closings because of Covid-19, I would like to stress one of the things that makes MAAP great - the network of practitioners who understand the unique needs of our students and support each other by sharing resources. With this in mind, a MAAP Covid-19 Resources folder has been created. Please share curriculum, online schedules or any other information that you think would be helpful to your fellow MAAP members. Please include your name and contact info with your resources in case there are any questions.

This is a difficult time, but we will get through it.

Thank you for all that you do for your students.

Please contact me with any questions, suggestions or concerns.

Krissy Wright, MAAP President

March 2020

This is an extremely stressful time. Knowing that others are going through the same process can be reassuring. Some links are listed below that are resources for all us in this time of stress. Also, we have placed a Google form here for people to add resources that they have found particulary useful. Once you add a resource, you can see what others have listed. However, if you just want to see the list, make an entry called "I want to see the list!"

Here is the Google Form were you can add resources that you have found useful:
