Teachers and educators from schools throughout Nelson County gathered May 23 at Old Kentucky Home Middle School for a day of professional learning.
The day focused on collaboration, best practices and instruction while providing professional learning experiences in 11 specific focus areas.
Focus areas included literacy design collaborative; mathematics design collaborative; project-based learning; the Google classroom; intervention strategies; health and physical education strategies; arts and humanities standards and curriculum; agriculture, area technology center and JROTC alignment of Kentucky occupational skills standards assessment with daily curriculum; mental health; and maker space.
Having already notched four distinguished school rankings, including one School of Distinction, the Nelson County School district itself is striving toward a distinguished ranking for the entire district.
Professional learning initiatives such as these experiences help prepare staff to achieve at their highest levels while preparing students to be life-long learners and contributing members of world society.
