South Dakota school to learn from TVHS
Educators from South Dakota will visit Tech Valley High School next month to learn from their counterparts at the regional public school.
Six teachers and administrators from Sioux Falls, South Dakota will "job shadow" Tech Valley faculty and staff on April 26 and 27.
The educators are the newest members of the New Tech Network, which includes Tech Valley High School and approximately 40 other schools across the country.
"Shadowing is a critical component in the process of our new schools understanding New Tech and all that it takes to successfully implement the model," said Meghan Pacheco, a New Tech Network coach from Napa, California.
TVHS Principal Dan Liebert said he is excited by the opportunity to share what he and TVHS faculty and staff have learned during the school's nearly three year existence.
Tech Valley High was designated a New Tech Network demonstration site in October, which means school leaders from across the country will descend on the school at various times for job shadowing and other opportunities.
The school also routinely hosts educators and business leaders from the North East as part of its vital role as an education incubator - teaching 21st Century skills through project based learning in partnership with businesses.
