Our Spring 2021 theme is: Modeling Inclusiveness → Leads to a Sustainable Call to Action.
The CCCAOE planning committee for the Spring Conference is looking for proposals that lead to sustainable action in the following areas: Strong Workforce Program, Perkins, Regional Promising Practices, Industry Partnership Success Stories, Apprenticeship, Strong K12 pathways/dual enrollment models, Inclusive Practices targeting at-promise populations, and more – workshops should provide promising practices that support student success, high-quality professional learning opportunities, student engagement & retention, system practices, using data to build high-quality programs, and building better hiring practices.
CCCAOE invites proposals that foster discovery and problem solving through idea sharing and community building. CCCAOE strongly encourages proposals that balance conceptual and theoretical frameworks with concrete, pragmatic examples. We seek to highlight the how and why of practices, strategies, or models and to facilitate reflection and engagement that helps translate VISION into practice.
Our Spring Conference, in March 2021 will be held virtually and will have concurrent breakout sessions scheduled throughout the 9 different days.
We are currently building the schedule. Please send in your submissions as soon as possible.
