China Exchange Initiative - Administrator Shadowing Project for 2014-2015
Berks County Intermediate Unit, in partnership with the China Exchange Initiative (CEI), is pleased to invite Pennsylvania Superintendents, Assistant Superintendents, Curriculum Directors and Principals to participate in the 2014-2015 U.S. China Administrator Shadowing Project, a program designed to establish ongoing sister school relationships between schools in the US and schools in China. Links to the China Exchange Initiative website and resources are located at the base of this email.
As part of the Project, each participating school in Pennsylvania is matched to a school in China. In the fall of 2014 the Chinese administrator will visit the Pennsylvania sister school. In turn, in the spring of 2015 the Pennsylvania administrator will visit the sister school in China. This is an outstanding opportunity for school districts who embrace the vision of developing globally competent students.
The bulk of the program costs will be subsidized by a grant from the Freeman Foundation. The value of the program is approximately $4,500. However, participants will only be required to submit an $1,800 co-pay, which covers transportation to, from, and within China; accommodations and meals in China; and other costs.
Click here for the application and additional details about the program. We are looking for a preliminary list by early March. Please feel free to call or write with any questions and to alert us of your intent to apply. Completed applications must be sent to Connie Skipper at firstname.lastname@example.org, or Beth Kozloski at email@example.com no later than March 31, 2014
Welcome Message From PASCD President Dr. Mary Wolf
Welcome to Pennsylvania ASCD! Our Annual PASCD Conference, held in November at the Hershey Lodge and Convention Center, was another successful educational event! Highlights included a warm welcome from the Secretary of Education, Dr. Carolyn Dumaresq; and keynote sessions by Chris Lehmann and Dr. Connie Moss, who reminded us of the importance of connecting with students and setting learning targets for achievement.
The Conference Committee and Conference Chair, Bryan O’Black, are thanked for coordinating such a valuable educational experience for you. Please mark your calendars for next year’s conference, which will be held on November 23-25, 2014, at the Hershey Lodge!
As you know, Pennsylvania is faced with many educational challenges and celebrations. If you’re an educator who wants to "do more” to lead in these changing times, please consider becoming involved with the numerous PASCD committee and leadership roles. To do so, you may contact the webmaster or me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for your interest in PASCD!
Dr. Mary A. Wolf, President
