MAAI Mega Aroostook

March 16, 2015

Successful day in the County!

“VPA teachers were excited to participate in the whole group discussion regarding Proficiency Based Education. Throughout the day, any ideas, frustrations, successes and strategies were shared.  The over all feel is that arts teachers are leading the way and are indeed positive and ready to keep moving forward!”

Twenty-seven Arts educators came together in Easton, Maine for the Aroostook Mega-Regional Workshops, co-sponsored by Central Aroostook Council on Education (CACE) and the Maine Arts Assessment Initiative (MAAI).  Everyone who attended agreed that the day was a success and came away grateful and excited for the opportunity to get together for meaningful content workshops and discussion.
