WVEC Title III Consortium

Regional Planning Meetings - UPDATE

Due to the closures in schools across the state, we will be cancelling the remainder of the Regional Planning Meetings that were scheduled for WVEC, Hobart and Region 8.. I had planned a webinar for Thursday afternoon, but the site we use for webinars was down, so it was recorded instead. Please see below for the link to the video.

ORDERING MATERIALS - EVERYTHING ON HOLD

Due to the school closures and uncertainty as to when districts will be back to school, we are suspending all orders for materials. If you have requested materials that have not yet been purchased, we will put you at the top of the list to have these materials ordered first when we do begin ordering again. For those of you have not requested materials, we ask that you consider waiting until late summer or early next fall to order new materials now. If you find yourself in a situation where you really need something, please reach out to Kierston McKinley and/or me and we will work through it with you to make sure you get what you need.

LINKS TO EL PD VIDEOS - GREAT FOR ONLINE PROFESSIONAL LEARNING

Several of you have reached out to me since school has closed asking about webinars or videos that could be shared with teachers and/or instructional aides as a part of Professional/Teacher ELearning. I have created a document that lists all of the videos I have created for Title III, along with the links to the Google Slides for each video. Feel free to share this list with teachers. If you do, and some participate, it would be wise to have them sign off somewhere as you could use this as evidence of learning for the audits. You can also provide them with a PGP certificate. If you are in need of a generic PGP certificate, email me and I would be happy to share what we use.

PADLET WITH DIGITAL RESOURCES FOR EL STUDENTS

Many are beginning to ask for digital resources that could help their English Learners during this time. Here is a link to a PADLET I am working on for EL Resources for Students. It includes Language Development, ELA, Math and more. If you have resources, send them to me and I will get them added!!

In addition, Kierston is putting together some excellent materials to support online instruction & learning as well. We will share these as they are available.
