Content Area Leadership Teams

Meeting Schedules, 2016-2017

Building Leadership Capacity

Our Education & Learning content area consultants facilitate meetings throughout the year for district teacher-leaders in English Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies. Participants in these networks collaborate to share new ideas and content related updates; learn the latest instructional and assessment strategies; plan professional learning activities; and take information back to their districts. See descriptions and details below for each area.

Mathematics Leadership Teams

The Mathematics Leadership Team focus during the past three years was very strategic - a deep understanding of the Common Core, creating quality math units/lessons, and experiencing research-based strategies for improving classroom instruction. We will continue this work into the upcoming school year. At each meeting, we focus on a different math domain/conceptual category from the Common Core.

Our Team Purpose: The Mathematics Leadership Team will participate in research-informed professional development experiences with the purpose of sustaining improved mathematics achievement.

The meetings will provide networking opportunities for members who serve as representative of their district.

Science classroom teachers - to ensure successful transition and implementation of new science standards, building county-wide leadership is essential! Participants will have up-to-date information regarding science education and the NGSS, while increasing the science leadership within your district. Leaders will be expected to disseminate information to teachers in their building/district and lead them in collaborative work. Work will be shared across districts in leadership meetings to help us all move toward common goals in science instruction.

Elementary teachers who are passionate about teaching students and advancing social studies education are invited to attend. During the previous school year, a small group of teachers from various districts met and found the collaboration and sharing time very beneficial in helping them improve student achievement in social studies.

During the 2016-17 school year, the collaboration will continue:

  • focusing on implementing the newly revised content expectations
