The Goochland County Public Schools will host a Strategic Innovation Symposium on June 6-7, 2019, for teachers and administrators across the division. The symposium has become a new tradition in Goochland County as a way to celebrate the end of the school year by highlighting the excellence with instruction that was made possible over the past year thanks to the Strategic Innovation Grant program, provided by the Goochland Education Foundation.
The GEF has given money to teachers to support innovative projects that promote deeper learning. Grant money is spent on technology, supplies, field trips, and other resources to support project-based learning.
This year, the symposium will take place over two days. On June 6, we will convene from 8:30AM-3:30PM at Goochland High School. Grant awardees will lead four series of talks to share the details, lessons, and successes associated with their grant-funded projects. Creativity will be a theme, and the day will end with a “Chopped Challenge” modeled after the popular TV Food Network show, Chopped.
Our second day of the symposium will focus on teamwork building relationships. Participants will spend the day at an area theme park.
Participation is limited, and registration will go out in mid-April.
Our thanks go to the innovative teachers across Goochland County and the financial support of the GEF to make this event possible!
