Thanks Kathy for some great images from the Annual Summer Conference. Since there is no Google Photos option attached to the SUNY account I am sharing them a little different, but it should work fine. The photos are all full size HERE

Cohort Meeting Plans

All cohort and full day meetings are mandatory.  Monthly cohort meetings will be hosted in three sites; Plattsburgh, Canton and Carthage. An agenda will be sent to all MT’s prior to the meeting.  Please review the information before the scheduled meeting. Site leaders in each site will facilitate the meetings and will act as a liaison to the Regional Director.  NC Fellows will choose one site to attend the monthly meetings and will be asked to sign in at each meeting. 

The monthly cohort meetings will have the following structure:
4:30- 4:45 – MTs gather and discuss the Agenda for the meeting - sent prior to the gathering - During this time questions for the Regional Director will be recorded by each site leader and typed into a Google Doc.  
4:45-5:00 - Regional Director begins the “Zoom Meeting” answering questions from each site.
5:00 – 6:00 – Planned/coordinated professional development activities for each site – based on discussion from retreat at ESF and July planning session.
6:00 - 6:30 - Master Teacher Teams work on “North Country Challenge” (an ongoing PD activity that will culminate at the May meeting in Watertown)
