In the Summer of 2013, several district curriculum leaders traveled to Greensboro, NC together to join forces with other school leaders. The goal of this 3rd annual NCDPI Summer Institute was to connect over matters of curriculum, instruction, and assessment. Representatives from NCCS in district leadership, school leadership, English/Language Arts, Math, Social Studies, Science, Counseling, ESL, Technology, Fine Arts, and more, attended state-led sessions to gain new knowledge and share ideas on best practices in their content areas. Time was devoted to district team planning, as well, and next steps are in place now to share this information with district stakeholders. Summer Institute leaders included Heather Mullins, Dr. Betsy Rosenbalm, Cindy Geddes, Elizabeth Gargis, Ashley Arndt, Jessica Luby, Marilynn Miles, Amanda McRary, Katie Cunningham, Bill Long, Priscilla Palmisano, Amber Humphrey, Patrick Nelson, Andrea Ward, Jill Hager, Dr. Scarlet Davis, and Revae Bostwick.
