NC Forestry Association

Each year the North Carolina Forestry Association also with its partners, the North Carolina Forest Service and the NC Sustainable Forestry Implementation Committee, deliver three regional workshops.  These workshop are designed to educate teachers about forestry and the importance of forestry to the state of North Carolina.  They also include Project Learning Tree curriculum that help teachers be able to translate the forestry information into practical classroom lessons that fall in line with NC State Educational Standards.  We are looking to fill out workshops this year with 120 educators.  The cost is only $50.  The NCFA and its partners pay for all food, lodging, and transportation once at the workshop.  We also pay for a fun activities at each workshop for the teachers. We are looking for teachers from 3rd through 12th grade, but all teachers that have never attended the workshop including non-traditional educators are welcome.  Educators will also receive 30 CEU contact hours for attending and will take back a wealth of knowledge to share with students and colleagues.  The dates for the workshop on are the attached flyer.  Our application period closes on April 15th, 2017.  The Mountain Workshop is full at this time.  Please act fast.   Please sign up now to take advantage of this great workshop.

2018 Spring Early Release Overview

Johnston County Public Schools is excited about the early release spring learning series! Teaching and Learning Coaches will be in contact with you soon. Until then -


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).
