Dear LAC Members,
Welcome to our October LAC Newsletter! We have had a very busy month behind us - new initiatives launched, new schools joining the LAC, and all schools starting a new academic year. A big Thank You for engaging with our LAC family; we are receiving a number of enquiries about the SEL engine, Class Placement engine, as well as great feedback that will help us pave the way for future enhancements. While we are working hard to implement the changes already underway such as new interface and legends for our engines, the new initiatives are helping us expand our LAC ecosystem and stay relevant in the ever-changing educational landscape. We look forward to sharing more information about these initiatives in future newsletters.
I was very pleased with our second Virtual Meetup on September 26th. We had a great turnout with over 30 participants across our 3 sessions. We want to acknowledge again our amazing speakers: Jonathan Semdes from International School of Phnom Penh and Andrew Blair from Zurich International School as well as all participants that have contributed to the event! Many new connections have been made and this is what this Collaborative is all about! More on the event in the section below.
I am also delighted to welcome the International School of Dongguan and The American International School of Vilnius to the LAC family. The schools have just joined us and are beginning their journey to implement the platform at their schools.
All the best and stay safe!
