Please join the Arizona Department of Education's Title IV-A team for the Title IV-A Symposium 2020.
Wednesday July 15, 2020
The symposium is designed to offer discipline-specific PD for enrichment instructors, staff, and the administrators who support them. The event will allow practitioners to “Reimagine Education” through the creative education methods supported by the Title IV-A Student Support and Academic Enrichment Grant.
This year’s event will be hosted online! Cost to attend is $40 (limit to 250 registrants due to space availability). Registration closes Tuesday July 14, 2020.
Based on two decades of community-based work, Gibney will share excerpts from Hands are for Holding®. An interactive school-based program that explores healthy relationships and creates opportunities for youth to experience how positive relationship characteristics can be embodied and practiced as a community.
The keynote will offer Arizona School educators an introduction on how dance can be used to:
Support the socio-emotional learning of students
Increase student resiliency
Have difficult conversations and leave young people with applicable resources Inspire student leadership and build community
We hope to inspire schools and educators in Arizona to incorporate arts programming into their curriculum to promote healthy relationships throughout their communities.
Founded in 1991 as a socially active dance company with a single studio, Gibney has emerged as an arts powerhouse. The organization is now home to thousands of artists and community members across two New York City locations, totaling 23 studios, 5 performance spaces, and 52,000 square feet of space. Gibney’s mission is to tap into the vast potential of movement, creativity, and performance to effect social change and personal transformation. This mission comes to life through impactful COMMUNITY action initiatives, two thriving performing arts CENTERS, and a stunning social justice dance COMPANY.
Lunch & Learn Panel
ADE Educator & School Excellence Title IV-A program is excited to host a Lunch & Learn Panel at the Reimagine Education with Title IV-A Symposium. The panel will consist of a diverse group of LEAs highlighting innovative educational practices occurring in our state through the assistance of Title IV-A funding. Panelists will interview each other about their creative programs, including updates on program implementation and partnerships they have established to help support their schools using Title IV-A funding. There will also be an opportunity for participants to ask the panelists questions as well.
Joining us for the panel are representatives from the following LEAs:
The Title IV-A Team has updated the School Security Request Memo for FY22 to include an equitable emphasis on student voice and holistic analysis of School Safety/Risk strategies for LEAs that wish to purchase school security measures.
