Common Core Standards workshop held at Northwestern

August 24, 2012

 Education Workshop
Sue Gendron with the International Center for Leadership in Education recently led a workshop for area educators regarding the Common Core State Standards.  Northwest Technology Center and Northwestern collaborated to plan and play host to this event.

In a cooperative effort with Northwest Technology Center, more than 200 educators came to Northwestern Oklahoma State University for a workshop on implementing Common Core State Standards. Educators from Alva, Burlington, Aline-Cleo, Fairview, Cherokee, Waynoka, Canton, Freedom and Northwest Tech attended this workshop to understand the requirements for the implementation.

Through a Tech Prep Grant, Northwest Technology Center brought in Sue Gendron with the International Center for Leadership in Education. The workshop was designed for all educational staff including instructors, administrators, guidance staff and assessment staff. Participants were provided with tools and strategies to address today’s standards and assessment needs while preparing to move their instructional programs to the new standards and assessments.

Gendron’s career in education spans 38 years as she leads the International Center’s consulting services to local districts and state education departments.

The International Center for Leadership in Education was established by Dr. William Daggett and has recruited numerous national leaders in education, such as Gendron, to conduct conferences, provide professional development activities and provide leadership to improve all aspects of the educational process.
