EXCELLENCE IN EDUCATIONAL SUPPORT
2017---A new year! Back in the late sixties while in high school, I remember reading 1984 and thinking wow, that’s a way off.
We are continuing to work hard here at the North GA RESA. Each month, I believe we get better and better working toward our on-going goal of providing Excellence in Educational Support to our participating teachers and leaders and their school systems. As we move along in this second semester of the 2016-17 school year, we have many professional learning opportunities scheduled through early May. Topics in math, writing, technology, leadership and others are all available to view on our website. At the site, you will be able to see the specific topics offered such as Microsoft Classroom, Math Manipulatives, and SLDS Overview to name a few.
During the first semester, we hosted 44 workshops and meetings and had 629 attendees participate. In addition to the meetings and workshops, endorsement courses and staff members are in our schools supporting teachers and leaders in their work of improving student achievement. Needless to say, we were excited about the offerings and participation. Also, we have developed and are in the process of implementing our strategic plan. It too can be viewed on our website. Our five strategic goals focus on support and training to improve student achievement, fiscal stability, safety, technology integrations and data analysis, and remaining current on state and national trends in education.
As a final note, we are pleased to announce that the inside of our facility has received an outstanding facelift; bright paint, new vivid, energy efficient lighting, and other much needed cosmetic upgrades have taken place. We have also begun efforts to spruce up the outside with some painting, tree trimming and to come, planting and mulching around the perimeter of our facility.
In closing, the North GA RESA is open for business. Please view our website, offer suggestions for improvement and/or suggestions for educational topics to offer, and feel free to stop by and say hello.
