June 4, 2021 - ECHS-NM Virtual Convening

On Friday, June 4, we held a half-day virtual convening. The conversation and sharing of ideas was great as we worked together to address problems of practice that early college high schools might face. While discussion in the breakout rooms is not available for viewing, we did record the main session and have posted it, the agenda, and the PowerPoint here for you. 

Monthly Check-In Meetings

Join us for monthly Check-In meetings on the first Tuesday of each month at 9:00 a.m. MST through the remainder of the 2020-21 school year. 

Engaging Students Through Careers - Professional Learning Community

Lead: Dr. Danielle Tallent

Session Timeframe: three 1-hour sessions beginning at 9:00 a.m. - February 2, February 9 and February 16

 How can we keep students motivated and engaged in the educational process?  For many students, the passion to learn and desire to participate in educational activities fades over time.  As result, educators and parents face increasing challenges in keeping students focused and engaged in learning the critical skills needed for postsecondary success.  One solution to the complex problem of declining motivation is to help students maintain a sense of purpose in their learning.  Join us in these three sessions as we discuss methods for exploring high-value careers with students and strategies for helping students connect their learning to career opportunities in their local communities.
