COEHS K-12 School District & CESA Outreach Program
In the past, these visits have served as a network to introduce new COEHS programs and promote current master’s degrees and gain insight for the college into changes in K-12 practices and needs.
With so many changes occurring at the state and district level since spring 2011, this summer we’re gathering feedback on behalf of the college pertaining to four issues that are impacting districts, new teacher education and continuing education for professional teachers. These four issues are:
In addition, we’re looking to better understand challenges and specific program needs, discuss public education in our region and across the state, obtain feedback about our students and new teachers and learn how K-12 schools are managing through assessments, new standards and changing curricula.
A record 45 visits are slated for this summer’s outreach.
Outreach Program History
Fred Yeo, Dean of the College of Education and Human Services, began the K-12 School District and CESA Outreach program in the summer of 2007 as a way to expand the college’s Outreach program by regularly meeting with K-12 district administrators and principals. Jim Hoffman, COEHS special projects director and retired principal from Oshkosh Area School District, and Fred have repeated the program every summer since, visiting districts within the college’s service region covering CESA 6 and much of CESA 7.
