New England PLTW Counselor-Administrator-Teacher Conference
As the Massachusetts Affiliate University for Project Lead The Way, WPI is pleased to host the 2012 New England PLTW Guidance Counselor - School Administrator - Teacher Conference on Monday, October 15. This conference is co-sponsored by the University of New Haven in Connecticut, NHTI Concord’s Community College in New Hampshire, and Project Lead The Way. It will be the only one for this academic year in the New England region.
This annual conference is designed to keep school counselors, administrators and teachers up to date on Project Lead The Way. It will include a professional development workshop for existing PLTW teachers. The conference also serves as an opportunity for personnel from interested schools to become better acquainted with the PLTW program. Attendees will learn what Project Lead The Way is, who it is for, and what outcomes students, parents and teachers can expect from the program. We look forward to representatives from your school joining us!
Please note: PLTW school district agreements state that PLTW schools must send at least one counselor each year to a PLTW counselor conference.
