Skill-Building Workshop [clear filter]
Tuesday, June 14


How do rural schools offer course options and college readiness?
Limited Capacity seats available

Look beyond the barriers and create an Advanced Placement (AP) program unique to your school. Build on the knowledge gained by Moffat County High School in Craig, Colorado, whose school leadership was committed to creating a rigorous AP program despite the lack of traditional grants and funding, and without financial support from CEI’s Colorado Legacy Schools program. See how Moffat County school leaders, working with thought partners from around the state, developed AP coursework to increase rigor and postsecondary outcomes in this rural community.

How can competency-based schools build and sustain learner-centered cultures?
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Explore ways to build and sustain learner-centered cultures that support competency-based teaching and learning environments. Partner with other participants to define learner-centered cultures and explore key questions and concepts about the role of culture in competency-based systems. Identify the skills needed to initiate, build, and sustain these environments among adults and students. Generate strategies and practices for schools to communicate the importance of these cultures in the community, and for the community to monitor whether the efforts are working. Get the tools, skills, and lessons learned from a school where these practices are alive and evolving.
