Hope Street Group

The NCDPI announced a new partnership yesterday with the Hope Street Group, a national nonpartisan nonprofit that connects teachers directly to policymakers. The Hope Street Group is currently accepting applications for the North Carolina Teacher Voice Network. This network provides teachers with opportunities to meet leading policymakers and present them with solutions for elevating the teaching profession.

Members of the network stay in their classrooms full time and work with Hope Street Group 10-15 hours each month. Network members receive a $3,500 stipend for the 12-month commitment. Teachers with interest and experience in teacher leadership and education policy are strongly encouraged to apply. Applications are due April 10, 2015.

Connect, learn, and innovate with other educators during the Johnston County Public School’s optional 2-day symposium! You may attend the 2-day session at either Cleveland High School on August 14 & 15 or at Corinth Holders High School on August 16 & 17.

This symposium will be organized into four quests that allow participants to learn around a specific theme. These themed structures provide participants with a focus to guide their learning over the two days so that each person walks away with a plan for implementation in the 2018-19 school year.

These two days are only the beginning of your journey! You can work at your school with your TLC or another coach to implement the new ideas you take away.

Your implementation plan and artifacts will allow you to earn 1.5 CEUs in Digital Learning Competencies. (There is a new state requirement beginning in 2019 that each renewal cycle include 2 units of Digital Learning Competencies credit).
