SPECIAL TO THE JOURNAL

On Tuesday, October 21, 2013, Rep. Charles Newton visited Highland Home School.

Prior to the walk-thru and classroom demonstrations, supervisors and administrators discussed legislative topics pertinent to education. Crenshaw County Board of Education officials advocated for a continuation and expansion of College and Career Ready Standards (CCRS); discussed the new accountability plan, PLAN 2020 and its link to CCRS; discussed CCBOE’s iLearn Initiative; and discussed the financial needs of the system.  During the walk-through, Representative Newton observed our use of technology via Mr. Josh Peter’s and Mrs. Eva Russell’s classrooms, a reading lesson per Mrs. Tara Bailey’s room and a math lesson in Mrs. Tina McGough’s room.  Representative Newton seemed most impressed with our initiatives and desire to continue to progress through College and Career Ready Standards.
