The North Carolina Department of Public Instruction hosted the 2014 Summer Institutes in all eight regions across the state of North Carolina. Regions 1, 2, 5 and 7 experienced a myriad of professional development experiences simultaneously on July 7-8, 2014, while Regions 3, 4, 6 and 8 participated simultaneously on July 9-10, 2014. .

This year's theme was "Sustaining Success: Building on Achievement," and the overarching goal of the 2014 Summer Institutes was to provide educators across the state with meaningful professional development to take them to the next level in READY implementation (Common Core, New Assessments, Educator Effectiveness, Home Base and more). We accomplished this by:

  • Strengthening relationships among local school districts as they continue to plan and execute specific activities and initiatives around Race to the Top work;
  • Assisting local school districts in assessing progress with their PD plans; pinpointing challenges that remain; and refining goals that will keep them moving forward in this effort;
  • Identifying how the NCDPI can provide resources to address the needs of local school districts in taking the lead and crafting their plans for sustainability as Year 5 of RttT approaches; and,
  • Effectively capturing and sharing new knowledge derived from best practices among colleagues statewide.
