Grant Wood AEA Mission: To ensure success for all learners.

Grant Wood AEA goals


Save the Date! MBE Science of Learning Virtual Training Workshop comes to Grant Wood AEA

Grant Wood AEA has entered into a pilot program with Neuroteach Global to offer the MBE Science of Learning Virtual Training Workshop beginning
Jan. 28, 2019 and continuing for 27 weeks online.

 

The MBE Science of Learning Virtual Training Workshop offers promising research in Mind, Brain, and Education science to help elevate the effectiveness of teachers and to close student achievement gaps.

 

Elevating a teacher or school leader’s understanding of how the student brain learns, works, and thrives allows educators to better challenge and support each student as an individual learner.

MBE Science of Learning Virtual Training Workshop

See flyer for details.

The course instructor will be Kim Owen, GWAEA regional administrator for the Mentoring and Induction Program, and also a Neuroteach Global pilot program participant. The online course facilitators will be Glenn Whitman and Dr. Ian Kelleher, both co-authors of “Neuroteach: Brain Science and the Future of Education.”


Kim said, “It is imperative that we continue to seek out ways to increase educator capacity to bring equity and accessibility to learning through technology and innovative practices and ensure that teachers are knowledgeable about the science behind learning to meet the needs of ALL students.”


“We started this journey with about 20 induction coaches (full-release mentors) that supported over 250 new teachers when they had the opportunity to participate in an early pilot of some of the Neuroteach Global sessions last spring,” she continued. “Our hope was that we would increase the knowledge and skills of these coaches, which would then translate in some ways to the classrooms of the new teachers they supported. Coaches, new teachers, administrators, and most importantly students began to see shifts in the learning environment that benefitted all.”


“The interest is now spreading and we are excited about the potential to bring Neuroteach Global to both new and veteran teachers in our area and make a lasting impact in their classrooms. Every student deserves every teacher to know the science of learning and the skills to implement MBE strategies  -- no matter their zip code,” she said.


Neuroteach Global received a $1 million grant from the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative to support this expansion. The Chan Zuckerberg Initiative (CZI)  was founded by pediatrician and educator
Dr. Priscilla Chan and her husband, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg.


CZI is a new kind of philanthropy that’s leveraging technology to help solve some of the world’s toughest challenges in three areas, including Education, as well as Science and Justice and Opportunity. The organization is focused on ensuring every young person enters adulthood with the life skills and abilities they need to reach their full potential in a changing world.

 

Watch for registration details for MBE Science of Learning Virtual Training Workshop (via Neuroteach Global) through GWAEA Professional Learning.


For more information, contact Kim Owen.

$1,500 Early Notification Incentive Approved by GWAEA Board and Available for All Employee Groups

Grant Wood AEA logo

At their meeting on Thursday, November 8, the GWAEA Board of Directors approved the recommendation to continue offering an early notification incentive for all staff (including contracted, management, classified, management support, salaried positions) to help support a timely hiring process for 2019-20.  This approved recommendation will help the agency proactively fill all positions in a timely manner.

 

To participate in this incentive, interested staff members must complete a full work year of agency service for 2018-19, and must commit to resigning or retiring at the end of this current work year, in writing, to Human Resources between November 8, 2018, and January 8, 2019. If the retirement or resignation is accepted by the board no later than its regular meeting on January 9, 2019, the staff member will receive an incentive of $1,500, payable to them on June 28, 2019 (conditional upon the staff member satisfactorily completing his or her employment obligations for the year).


In summary:

  • The GWAEA Board of Directors has approved a $1,500 early notification incentive for eligible staff (those who complete one full work year of agency service) who provide early notification of their retirement or resignation.

  • Eligible staff who intend to resign or retire at the end of the 2018-19 work year must notify HR in writing before 4:30 p.m. on January 8, 2019 (email notice is acceptable).

Staff with questions about the incentive are welcome to contact the HR office at x6703.

Get the Benefit of Student Loan Financial Planning with Fiducius

Trying to understand all the possible ways to better manage your student loans is a daunting task. We are pleased to offer a new Loan Relief benefit from Fiducius (formerly ISLoan Solutions).

 

With their financial planning approach, the student loan Advisors at Fiducius help you navigate and determine your best option, including forgiveness, refinancing and consolidation. They may help you lower, or even eliminate, your student loan payment.

 

Your Grant Wood AEA 10 colleagues are already working with Fiducius to reduce their monthly payments by an average of 82% and are projected to receive an average of $73,000 in tax-free loan forgiveness.

 

It’s easy to get started with this new benefit. You can determine your eligibility and potential savings in just a few minutes and then talk with an advisor on the phone at your convenience, by using the following link:

 

Visit Grant Wood AEA 10 + Fiducius to register

Enter code AEA10 to learn more

 

 Fiducius will fully educate you about all available options and provide a personalized Student Loan Financial Wellness Plan at no cost before you decide whether or not to use their services. As with other voluntary benefits, like life insurance, you only pay Fiducius when you choose to use their services.

 

We encourage you to take a step to improve your financial wellness and learn if Fiducius can help you better manage your student loans.

 

Questions, or trouble logging in? Call 1.513.645.5400, email or visit their website for more information and success stories.


Professional Learning Registration

To search for a workshop or course, we recommend using the search bar with the course or section number. If you want to search for a class, we recommend using the Advanced Search option, limiting to the AEA you want to search, then searching by course title, date, subject, etc. 

 


Please preregister for all professional learning activities. This allows adequate time to prepare for materials and room space so that the professional learning session is comfortable for both presenters and participants. 


You may use professional learning dollars to cover registration fees (following HR policies).  If your participation is being covered by a region or program budget, work with your supervisor and support staff to confirm the budget approval prior to your registration. You will enter payment using directions provided by your support staff. Your support staff will not be registering you unless special arrangements are made. Paper registrations are no longer used by the PL office to preregister.

 

All participants must register including practicum students and student teachers as this allows us to ensure materials and space is adequate for all events.

 

Professional learning surveys are available and we would kindly ask for your timely feedback from any professional learning session that you attend. The planners and presenters both value the session feedback.


Transcripts and certificates of completion are available for download or print from your registration log in.


If you have any questions, please contact Lisa, Sue or Sherry in the Professional Learning office.
