Supporting education issues, Organizations & needs in Florida

Join us as we begin with a site visit to Highpoint Elementary, at which the Helios Education Foundation and the Pinellas Education Foundation invested in research-based, high quality professional development about the Science of Reading. Now, highly skilled teachers are using their new skills and tools to help striving readers grow into confident reading scholars.

We will get a firsthand look at the results by:
•            Visiting a classroom to see the Lastinger Center’s Flamingo Small Group Reading Instruction Model in action with young scholars.
•            Hearing a teacher share how the job-embedded professional development and coaching revolutionized their literacy instruction.
•            Learning how this philanthropic investment has changed the trajectory of a school and children’s lives.

Then join your colleagues for a deep dive into examples of collective impact models addressing education needs from early learning to post-secondary success.  We will also plan for policy engagement leading up to and including the 2023 legislative session.  Our final presentation will be “Ask an Educator” where a variety of EAG members’ questions around textbook adoption, how instruction is impacted by recent legislation, addressing chronic absenteeism & tardiness, etc.
