Thursday, May 27, 2010 Complimentary Workshop at Fox School District for K-12 Educators
The VLC received this information that we’d like to pass along:
The Fox C-6 School District invites you to join them at their half-day neuroscience seminar on Tuesday, June 1.
Fox School District, recipient of Missouri’s “Distinction in Performance” award for the past nine years, and one of the rare Missouri districts to get a school off of the school improvement list, has implemented a neuroscience-based intervention to accelerate learning for their at-risk students. By strengthening student memory, increasing ability to focus attention, accelerating the speed of mental processing skills, and enhancing the brain’s ability to sequence and organize information, at-risk Fox students are showing impressive achievement gains. Fox administrators are pleased with the progress of their students utilizing these principles of “Brain Fitness” to accelerate learning. District leaders have set a goal to learn more about what current neuroscience says about increasing achievement. To support this goal, the district has chosen to bring in experts to provide this neuroscience seminar to St. Louis area district leaders.
You are invited to attend on June 1, from 8 to 11:30 a.m. at the Fox Service Center in Arnold. This event, associated with Scientific Learning, will be attended by superintendents, assistant superintendents, curriculum directors, Title 1 directors, SPED directors, school improvement facilitators, building principals, educational consultants, and DESE consultants. Please RSVP by May 28th to Tracy Baker at 817-295-0912.
