On Thursday, January 23rd, Buckeye Elementary School District hosted its fellow members of the North Valley Educational Consortium (NVEC) for a day of collaborative learning and professional development centered around the theme of new beginnings.
Over 50 members attended this day of training.
NVEC is an educational consortium of nine districts which includes Cave Creek, Fountain Hills, Paradise Valley, Peoria, Dysart, Scottsdale, Deer Valley, Madison, and Buckeye Elementary.
This consortium provides cost effective educational programs, activities and services to its member districts.
Working as a consortium gives us access to professional development that enables member districts to remain on the leading edge of education, while staying true to the priority of fiscal responsibility.
At a time when many districts focus their efforts on foundational topics for professional development, NVEC members extend beyond the foundations to include a focus on all children, including those with exceptional needs.
To provide a symposium worthy of NVEC’s members’ time, Buckeye tapped into their leaders who have been selected to share their expertise in their specialization with colleagues at state and national level conferences and selected the best sessions to bring to the whole of NVEC.
