Curriculum Leaders from Across North Carolina Attend NCCAT Conference

The fifth NCCAT Curriculum Leaders Conference was held Sept. 15-17 in Cullowhee.

CULLOWHEE – Curriculum Leaders from across the state joined the North Carolina Center for the Advancement of Teaching (NCCAT), a recognized national leader in professional development programming, for the fifth NCCAT Curriculum Leaders Conference Sept. 15-17 in Cullowhee.

The agenda for the NCCAT conference was determined based on feedback from curriculum leaders and current state initiatives. Conference attendees also identified needs in their districts and gave feedback on future NCCAT programming.

Conference sessions included NCDPI updates, legal updates, best practices, COVID response in curriculum and instruction, and a science of reading presentation funded by the Belk Foundation. Conference attendees also identified needs in their districts and gave feedback on future NCCAT programming.

The conference had four primary goals: 1) provide participants an opportunity to network with other leaders across the state; 2) foster an environment where participants can collaborate with peers; 3) deliver professional development to meet participants' professional needs; and 4) make available an environment where curriculum leaders can build relationships with each other and NCCAT staff.

Curriculum leaders said they found the time valuable.

"This was my first time participating with NCCAT, and it was a wonderful experience," said Dr. Jacqueline Perry-Higgs, Director of Curriculum & Instruction/AIG Coordinator at Bertie County Schools. "The sessions were timely and relevant to us for the needs at this time. They provided guidance and support. I learned a great deal being here, and made some good connections."
