Strong K-12 schools are vital to the strength and sustainability of year-round island and coastal towns. Our Education team supports the students, teachers, school leaders and parents of these communities by responding to identified interests and needs, and creating opportunities for connection and collaboration.
The 2017 Island Teachers Conference will take place Thursday, October 5th and Friday, October 6th at the University of Maine Hutchinson Center in Belfast, Maine. Educators from the coast of Maine and beyond are invited to attend and exhibit at the conference and to lead workshops and presentations on a wide-range of topics, including: place and project-based learning through collaboration, creative expression, social issues, STEM education, and much more. The theme of this year’s conference is "Small School Solutions: Meeting Island Students Where They Are." Join us - click here for details and a complete schedule!
