Monthly News and Resources
Program Focused Coaching Support  is a model that approaches the program holistically and brings all the necessary supports together into the program (technical assistance, coaching, consultation, PLCs, and professional development training) to improve program quality.

These supports will lead to improvements in the knowledge, skills, practices and dispositions of early childhood and ASOST professionals and enhance program quality.

Through the Region 5 Educator and Provider Support (EPS) grant, the Southeast Education Professionals Partnership (SEEPP), is committing resources to provide this “Program Focused Support” to eligible programs that apply through our website. Every effort will be made to select programs that are representative of the mixed delivery system and have a balance within the cities and towns of Region 5.

In the Morning Opening: 
 
At a time when American students from economically deprived schools are often ill-prepared for the global, digital economy, the film, Without a Net: The Digital Divide in America, explores how technology can provide opportunities for learning and can help level the playing field. A 20-minute screening of the film will be followed by a discussion with producer/director Rory Kennedy; Lt. Governor Karyn Polito, co-chair, Massachusetts STEM Advisory Council; and Rose Stuckey Kirk, Chief Corporate Responsibility Officer, Verizon & President, Verizon Foundation.
 
At the Luncheon Plenary: 
 
Do you think you're smarter than middle schooler? The MathCounts Competition is national program that provides students in grades 6-8 the opportunity to compete in live, in-person contests against and alongside their peers. On the STEM Summit stage, local "mathletes" will be paired with Massachusetts STEM luminaries for our own installment of the MathCounts Competition!
