On August 9, 2018, Region 16 will hold its annual Fall Kickoff at the Amarillo Civic Center.  Once again, we are excited to announce the opportunity to highlight best practices from schools around the panhandle, and we are asking for your participation by entering one of your promising programs. 

There are no topic limitations in order to have your program recognized, but participants might consider some of the following categories:

Developing Students’ Critical Thinking Skills
Blended Learning
Collaborative Teaching
Instructional Technology
Student Participation in Extracurricular Activities
Teacher Appraisal
Instructional Coaching
Serving Special Populations
Community Engagement
Teacher and/or Administrator Development
Student Engagement

A committee of educators will select 5 finalists to be featured during our morning convocation in short video segments produced by the Region 16 Communications Department.  These videos will serve as an introduction to the school’s/district’s program as well as the role of key players in the program.

Our 5 finalists will receive:

Recognition at the conference  (On-stage introduction of the school’s featured program video during the Region 16 Fall Kickoff)
A copy of the video (A professionally produced video will be supplied to district officials… A district might place this video on its website or utilize it for other promotional purposes)
Media recognition (Press release to Panhandle-area television and print media)
Submission to TEA (One finalist will be submitted to the TEA for consideration in its annual best practices publication)

We look forward to honoring your great work in front of hundreds of teachers and administrators this Fall!
