readyNC Ready for Success is excited to announce two new educational summits in September.

Math educators will be interested in attending our Math Summit on September 19th from 9:30 am – 3:30 pm at Central Piedmont Community College.

 English educators will be interested in attending our English Summit on September 26th from 9:30 am – 3:30 pm at UNC – Wilmington.

Building on our inaugural event in the spring, these summits will continue to promote stronger cross sector connections and increased vertical alignment by providing  forums for faculty/ teachers from K12, CCs, universities  to deepen their understanding of math and English Standards/ SLOs.

Please note: space is limited at these events to ensure balanced representation from the different sectors.  If you are interested in attending, please speak with your principal to see if funds are available.
