South High to host Educator Effectiveness Academy

July 22, 2012

Approximately 420 teachers and other educators from the region will meet for three days at South Hagerstown High School this week for an Educator Effectiveness Academy to learn more about the new curriculum for Maryland public schools, according to local and state education agencies.

The Maryland State Department of Education is having academies throughout the state this summer to help teachers and principals learn about the more rigorous, in-depth Common Core curriculum, according to the state education department’s website.

South High, in Hagerstown’s South End, is hosting one of the academies from Tuesday through Thursday.

Each school in the state is to send a team to one of the academies to learn about the new curriculum, according to the state education department’s website at http://marylandpublicschools.org. The team consists of the school’s principal, a math teacher, an English language arts teacher, and a science, technology, engineering and mathematics teacher.
