Registration Start Date:
The Co-Teaching Elementary Reading/Math CTERM (K-5) academy is a two-day academy designed for elementary school general and special education teacher co-teaching teams who work together during math and reading to enhance student outcomes by improving content understanding, pedagogical strategies for math and reading, collaboration/co-teaching strategies, and networking.
The Virginia Department of Education will assume the cost of registration, the extra meal plan (breakfast and dinner) and On-Campus DOUBLE lodging (if you select SINGLE lodging, you will pay the difference of $30) for all Virginia public school teachers. A $200 stipend will be provided to each participant upon successful completion of this 2-day academy.
A requirement of the CTERM Academy is a teacher team (one Special Education Teacher and a co-teaching elementary general education k-5 Teacher attend). **Important NOTE** When completing the registration form you must BOTH identify the other member of your teacher team (see below). Please be aware that while you may get an email upon completion of the form saying your registration is COMPLETE your status will be changed to PENDING if the other member of your team does not register within 10 days.
The 2018 Content Teaching Academy sessions begin at 8:30 am Monday, June 25 and conclude at 5:00 pm on Tuesday, June 26. The daily schedule is set up much like a high school 4x4 block schedule, with two 1.5 hour sessions in the morning and two 1.5 hour sessions in the afternoon. Breaks with snacks and beverages are provided between sessions in both the mornings and afternoons.
This training is designed for school based teams comprised only of persons who are currently employed by local public schools and authorized by the superintendent to represent the school division. Therefore, registration for the training is limited to current public school employees only. No onsite registration will be accommodated. All registrants will be required to present a school-issued identification card at the check in desk upon arrival. Individuals registered will not be permitted to send a substitute if they are unable to attend. No audio or video taping of the training sessions will be allowed. The Virginia Department of Education reserves the right to cancel the registration of any person who does not meet the registration criteria.
