Happy Valentine’s Day!
The House and the Senate adjourned yesterday. They will convene on Wednesday, May 16 at noon for the short session.
A note from our colleague Pamela Blizzard at Research Triangle High School:
School Leaders and Teachers,
Would you and your teachers like to understand Personalized Learning and learn how to implement it well? Learn how to accelerate learning for your students?
Research Triangle High School is sharing our work in Personalized Learning, in partnership with NCDPI and @SummitPS, in Showcase Workshops all day 3/21 and/or 3/28. Stipends and overnight hotels available, courtesy of our state’s Digital Learning Initiative. You’ll be observing, questioning, listening, creating, researching, and presenting — all with our experienced team members as personalized leaders.
School leaders and up to four teachers from each school are welcome! https://t.co/1SLB4KWRiF. CEUs may be awarded.
