This year SECO is partnering with SWOCTM for a half day mini-workshop on Saturday, February 29th, LEAP day. This fun event is a great way to participate in PD for science, math and STEM teachers but we need your help to make this a great event.
Is there a lesson you really enjoy? Do you use a strategy with students that is effective? Is there a tech tool you use in your instruction? Are you passionate about something you would love to share with others? Have you lead a session at a previous conference for SECO or others? Please consider submitting a proposal to lead a session at this year’s conference.
We would love to have anywhere from 30-35 sessions that cover a variety of topics within the mathematics and/or science realms and also targeted at a variety of grade levels. If you would like to be considered to lead a session, the time is here! Complete the proposal form at the link http://bit.ly/SWOCTMSpeaker by December 11th to be considered. We will let anyone who submits a proposal know by the first of the year if they have been accepted for this year's event.
For the 2020-21 school year, SECO will be moving its annual Science Symposium from January/ February to early November.
Join us on November 9 & 10, 2020 at the Nationwide Hotel and Conference Center in Lewis Center, OH for the 2020 SECO Science Symposium.
More information will be posted after the New Year.

FREE Science Professional Learning Opportunities with the Ohio Department of Education
The science team in the Office of Learning and Instructional Strategies at the Ohio Department of Education is piloting a three-day, sustained professional learning series for K-12 science teachers. We are providing services at seven sites in partnership with ESCs and local school districts. Although we are unable to serve every district this year, we would welcome a representative from your organization to participate and take the experience back to your area. This could be someone from an ESC staff, an SST member, a district curriculum person or local teacher-leader, whoever is best positioned to share the knowledge with science teachers in your area.
The series is designed for teachers to participate in three day-long sessions with the ODE science team. The sessions are spaced several weeks apart for teachers to have the opportunity to try lessons in their classrooms between sessions. Session content will focus on transitioning to the revised science standards and model curriculum, effective instructional practices and identifying quality instructional materials. The locations, dates and contact person for each site are listed below. Locations have been asked to reserve space for neighboring personnel but the availability of space for outside people varies by location. If you are interested in participating, please contact the site which is most convenient for you and follow their registration procedure.
