As an effort to assist our member districts in the vital area of school improvement and innovation, North Point Educational Service Center began the Emerging Trends Network or ETN. The ETN concept was created by Dr. Willard Daggett, who is one of the most respected names in educational reform. The five (5) trends that have been identified by his organization are:
1. Digital Leadership and Learning
2. Career Readiness
3. Application Based Learning
5. Data Analytic
A total of fourteen member districts have signed on and have chosen to pursue one or more of the trends listed above.
As important as the five (5) trends are, they will be largely ineffective without the following: Rigor, Relevance, Relationships/Culture.
Dr. Daggett often states that "culture trumps strategy every time." Culture is the foundation on which the rest of the "educational house" is built. However, culture is not enough. The ETN has placed a great deal of emphasis on the concepts of Rigor and Relevance. As an attempt to assist educators, Dr. Daggett created what is called the Rigor/Relevance Framework (see diagram below).
On August 4, 2016 North Point Educational Service Center hosted their annual one-day retreat for area school leaders at the Kalahari Resort/Convention Center. The event was attended by approximately 200 superintendents, principals, treasurers, coordinators, supervisors and directors from 27 school districts.
The Retreat marked the thirty-ninth (39th) year that the Center has organized and hosted the in-service. This event kicks-off the new school year. It affords school leaders the opportunity to come together and discuss plans for the upcoming school year and to interact with colleagues in other districts so they can collaborate on common programs and activities.
