Three-plus weeks of school and community visits was a success. Again, thank you for welcoming me into your classrooms.
As the summer break approaches, these updates will be sporadic and as needed. Enjoy a much needed respite.
Congrats Big Piney Principal Mr. Makelky on being the 2020 Secondary Principal of the Year
National Summer Learning and Enrichment Collaborative
The U.S. Dept. of Education, National Governors Association (NGA), Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO), and the Comprehensive Center Network launched the Summer Learning and Enrichment Collaborative. Dates for the virtual events are May 27, June 10, June 24, July 8, July 22, and August 12. The purpose of the collaborative is to support state and local teams, community partners, and other education stakeholders as they plan and implement learning and enrichment activities during the summer and beyond. Each session will have a short opening plenary along with concurrent discussions offering practical tools, strategies, and opportunities for peer sharing in the following areas: building school-community partnerships, effective use of fiscal resources, attracting/supporting staff for summer programs, evidence-based learning and enrichment strategies, addressing a full range of student needs, and tailoring supports to specific populations.
