Do you have a great idea for an engaging and innovative learning opportunity that would benefit Vermont’s students? Come, join the conversation on high school innovation and enjoy a free dinner!
The Vermont Agency of Education (VT-AOE) has hosted several community dinners as an opportunity for regional educators, students, business leaders, and community members to come together and discuss ways to develop and promote innovative educational practices at the high school level.
Much of the conversation at the Missisquoi Valley UHS dinner focused on what career readiness looks like; participants felt it’s crucial that students have time for career exploration prior to graduation. Internships, job expos, work ethics, attendance, resumes, interview skills, teamwork, and personal finance were a few of the ideas generated. The VT-AOE created a wordle which captured key ideas from the Johnson State College dinner; you can view the wordle here: http://education.vermont.gov/community-dinners#ideas.
The final two Community Dinners on High School Innovation will be held from 6 – 8 p.m.:
• Thursday, April 11th at National Life, Dining Hall
• Thursday, April 25th at Brattleboro Union High School, Multipurpose Room
