Northeast TURN Labor-Management Collaboration Conference

September 23-24, 2016

Dear Northeast TURN Colleague,
Our next Northeast TURN event is scheduled for September 23-24, 2016 at the Microsoft Office, One Cambridge Center, Cambridge, MA 02142. Our conference will focus on Making a Difference: Integrating Academic, Social and Emotional Learning through Collaborative Partnerships. We will continue to collaboratively examine ways to plan and integrate the implementation of rigorous and challenging student learning and teaching standards, practices and programs. We will also explore new approaches in developing conditions for effective teaching and learning. Our agenda will feature local, state and national examples of promising practices and policies that focus on this joint work. Our NE TURN teams represent union & teacher leaders, school & district administrators and board members who are working jointly to plan and implement teacher evaluation systems and the common core standards to improve teaching and learning. We continue to encourage and support our NE TURN teams to jointly develop, implement and share their efforts. Additionally, we will work with teams to develop action plans in order to facilitate the work in our school communities.Our NE TURN locals are encouraged to invite representatives from their district and school administration, boards of education and community leaders to join their teams for this two-day forum.
Our conference will begin at 9:00 am on Friday, September 23 and will conclude by 12:30 pm on Saturday, September 24. Registration deadline is September 16, 2016.
