"SHESC Messenger": Start of January 2022
Start of January 2022
|SHESC Executive Director Featured on ACE-Ed Podcast|
|Help Students Graduate on Time with Credit Recovery|
|Happy Holidays from SHESC!|
As part of the Perkins V grant process, districts must consider whether all special populations have access to and equity in career and technical education (CTE) programs.
This workshop will next be available by Zoom the afternoon of January 26, 2022. Just register HERE.
It is designed to improve communication between the CTE and Special Education (SPED) worlds by bringing together educators and administrators from both groups to have conversations about how they can better collaborate, with the ultimate goal of helping SPED students leave high school with a clear plan and employable skills.
In the SPED world this is accomplished through a transition plan; while in the CTE world it happens through an individual plan of study. Often this results in a duplication of effort and little or no acknowledgement of one plan by the other.
By collaboration between CTE and SPED, students will be better served with a cohesive transition plan that is built on the individual plan of study.
Pam Kraus will lead this beneficial professional development opportunity designed to help save you time and money.
If you have students who are great candidates for graduating at semester instead of in the spring, a Smoky Hill Learning Center credit recovery account could help them to achieve that goal and jump into the workforce or start college earlier!
Even if they don't finish early, credit recovery can help struggling students stay on track for May graduation with their classmates!
Save your district money and run your own on-site credit recovery program through Smoky Hill Learning Center’s Apex Learning account for as low as $100 per semester course.
You can also send students directly to SHLC to recover failed or incomplete credits working virtually with our learning center teachers. We will need written approval from school officials, verification of the class or classes that a student needs to recover, and information on who is responsible for the cost – either the school or the student’s family. The cost is $200 per semester course.
For more information, please call our learning center at 785-825-0435 or e-mail Troy Marseline at email@example.com.
It sure would be nice to have some January lesson plans ready to go when you get back from the holidays!
