Professional Development Opportunity for Three ACPS Educators

ACPS Human Resources is excited to fund three educators (who will join one administrator) to attend the Center for Black Educator Development’s 8th annual Black Men in Education Convening this November 21-23.

Participants will be welcomed in a communal, empathetic space to discuss the deeply emotional, intellectual, and trajectory-altering work revolutionary Black men educators do on a daily basis. The agenda of distinguished speakers, panel discussions, and workshops will inform, inspire and activate Black men in education and others in the education ecosystem to continue changing the outcomes for both students and educators.

This opportunity is open to all educators directly working with students, including all teachers in a licensed role, counselors, interventionists, math, music, art, physical education, speech language pathologists, etc. The chosen participants will have the opportunity to share their experiences with ACPS leadership teams.

Registration, travel, meals and lodging will be paid for by ACPS. If you are interested in applying to be one of the three sponsored educators who will accompany one administrator, please apply by 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, June 2:

Chosen participants will be notified by Friday, June 7.

If you have any questions or need assistance, reach out to Shay Carter-Shifflett, Program Manager, Talent Retention & DEI, or Jason Crutchfield, Program Manager, Talent Acquisition.
