Description

This combined Virtual Division Event is offered for those interested within and outside of the following divisions: Abe Lincoln, Blackhawk, Central Illinois Valley, Corn Belt, Egyptian, Illini, Kaskaskia, Shawnee, Southwestern, Two Rivers, Wabash Valley, and Western.

Option 1: Enhanced School Finance Necessities — Moving beyond understanding of core school finance areas into application prompts an outgrowth of district responsiveness that heightens reactive and proactive positioning. Such strategic options present expanded opportunities to further cultivate resources and outcomes for students, the community, and the district-at-large.

Designed as a follow-up presentation to go beyond school finance basics, this presentation will review core school finance concepts and then advance into delivery of supportive strategic avenues for district finances. The featured presenter will be Assistant Superintendent Chad LeCrone, Richland County CUSD 1.

Following the presentation, a question-answer period between the presenter and attendees will occur (as time permits).

Option 2: Grow Your Own to Confront the Teacher Shortage — Securing teacher employment amidst a profession plagued with candidate shortages threatens the stability and the expected deliveries of the education system. Confronted with this state and national challenge, district ingenuity has enabled some degree of coverage. Despite this ingenuity, the depth of the shortage has proven formidable and evoked governmental response support through Grow Your Own initiatives.

Featured presenter, Dr. James Rosborg, Professor of Education, McKendree University, will share the circumstances and dynamics of the existing teacher shortage while expounding on the returns that Grow Your Own initiatives offer districts.

Following the presentation, a question-answer period between the presenter and attendees will occur (as time permits).
