2013-2014 Principals' Cadre - The ESU 4 team is excited to continue the tradition of hosting Principals' Cadre for K-12 area principals. Principals' Cadre is an excellent opportunity for principals to network, discuss relevant issues, and share best practices. As you requested, this year we have scheduled more cadre meetings. Lunch will begin at 11:45 with the cadre meeting scheduled from 12:30 - 3:00 PM. The dates of the cadres are:
December 4, 2014 - ESU 4 Analytical Scoring from 9:00 AM - 3:00 PM at the Sheridan Training Facility in Auburn. Area teachers will meet to score student writing papers analytically in order to provide feedback to students and teachers for the improvement of writing. One teacher for every 25 papers sent for scoring should register for this workshop. Each participating school building must designate a school contact person upon registration. All preliminary information and materials, including prompts and directions, will be sent to the school's contact person. This person will also be responsible for sending student names/numbers to Gregg Robke in advance of the workshop. Registration deadline is Nov. 1, 2013.
December 13, 2014 - ELL Network from 9:00 AM - 1:00 PM at Firespring in Lincoln, NE (1201 Infinity Court). The ELL Network is a forum for southeast Nebraska district personnel to discuss issues related to the education of English Language Learners. These sessions are the primary means of sharing information throughout the ESU 6 Title III Consortium; however, a majority of our time is devoted to studying effective instruction, sharing and exploring resources, learning of updates from NDE, and networking with colleagues. We welcome all districts and personnel interested in English Language Learners, regardless of Title III affiliation or position.
Feel free to register online for any of the above workshops held by ESU 4.
