This page will feature information about Summer Institutes 2013.

SPRING 2013 READY REGIONAL OUTREACH VIRTUAL MEETINGS
As we move toward the end of the school year and the start of the 2013-14 year, there will be new assessments, a new accountability model, a new evaluation system and new technology tools to support teachers and students. It's important during this time of remodeling and change that we keep strong communication flowing.
Recently, you received a Save the Date notice for the Spring 2013 Regional Outreach Virtual Meetings – the third round of READY Outreach Meetings hosted by State Superintendent June Atkinson and NCDPI. This time we are using virtual meeting tools to continue the conversation and information sharing.
Please select ONE DATE EACH to REGISTER for the Home Base Outreach session and the Accountability/Assessments session.
****IMPORTANT NOTE: Each meeting will have a limited number of spaces, so there should be only ONE log-in per school or central office for each session. We ask principals to designate one area, such as a media center, auditorium, or conference room, and invite key personnel to attend. We ask the same of superintendents in central offices.****
