Educational strategies focus of BOCES meeting
The Northwest Board of Cooperative Educational Services will be sponsoring a professional development day from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Friday. This event will bring together more than 650 of Northwest Colorado's licensed teachers and administrators from Moffat, Routt, Grand and Jackson counties to provide them with the tools they need to enhance their competencies and become more effective in their classrooms and to discuss strategies to best support each other in an effort to maximize student achievement across northwest Colorado. The themes for the day include Collaboration, Literacy and Educator Effectiveness. These themes were chosen to reflect some of the current needs and challenges in education and increase educators skills and knowledge in these areas.
Steamboat school to host event for teachers
The professional development day will be Friday at the Steamboat Springs High School, 45 Maple St.
Teachers in the NW BOCES districts will present many of these sessions in an effort to use and highlight local talent. In addition, staff will have an 80-minute session in the afternoon for content collaborative discussions. This day has been designed around the need for job-alike dialogues so there is time to share the good work being done in each district, brainstorm potential solutions to district specific challenges and develop a strong, collaborative cohort network.
