Welcome Back!
What happened over the summer? What is on the schedule for 2016-17? 

The summer has come to an end. Back to school shopping is complete. Photos have been taken. Tears have been shed. Now... it's time to really dig in and get the best of the best in professional learning for your year ahead. 

We're excited about the variety of trainings and events on the schedule and we're ready to roll out our list of opportunities - there really is something for EVERYONE!

One area to highlight is our search for 10 pilot buildings for our Healthy Schools Program! It will focus on increasing opportunities students have to be physically active while at school and improving the school nutrition environment. Plus... Interactive Health Technologies, wearable technology and software that provides feedback that students can see, is being considered! Find out more in our healthy school update.

So, with all that said - WELCOME BACK!

5 Innovative Tech Initiatives Happening in Schools Today
As the school year gets underway across the nation, many schools and districts are launching new technology initiatives and programs designed to improve teaching and learning. 

Educators love to share their successes, learn from the success of other schools and districts, and they also love to share lessons they learned along their journey.

The South East Education Cooperative has had A LOT, and boy do I mean A LOT, of changes in the past year. Some planned, some unplanned. Some changes were welcomed with big smiles, some pushed us to say some sad goodbyes and others were full of obstacles and big learning curves. But, we survived it all and we are ready to tackle a new year!
