Teachers and Administrators Collaborate at District Wide In-service

More than seven hundred teachers and administrators from the Kenai Peninsula School District converged at Kenai Central High School on August 17. Throughout the day of Collaboration Leading to Effective Instruction, connections, preparation and learning transpired.

Superintendent Steve Atwater asked everyone to focus on the half-full glass and encourage one another. Collaboration is a theme for the new school year, and breakout sessions in the afternoon focused on content and grade-alike sessions. Keynote Hall Davidson, director of Discovery Educator Network, demonstrated web 2.0 technologies, offering several free sites for educational integration. The websites he shared are now available via the internet on school computers. A link to Discovery Education is on our website.

KPBSD welcomes a new school year. We appreciate the commitment from the Board of Education, the educators, staff, and administrators who gathered during the district wide in-service to learn and collaborate together.
