HILL COUNTRY EDUCATIONAL LEADERSHIP
OUR RURAL INITIATIVES
Of the 1020+ independent school districts in the state of Texas, 650 of those districts are designated as rural. In many cases, educational training and support is centered around urban and metropolitan areas, creating a gap between professional opportunities for rural educators and their urban and metropolitan peers.
HCEL is committed to addressing this gap in services by providing multiple learning cohorts and partnerships with rural school districts and rural educators.
HCEL, an educational non-profit led by veteran Texas public school educators, is proud to announce our LOLA ENGAGED! series launch for 2021-2022. HCEL operates LOLA, a model/lab school connecting learning to real-life in an academically challenging, hands-on learning environment. Join HCEL for a day of innovative, practical, and purposeful professional learning focused on engaging students in any educational setting. LOLA ENGAGED! for Leaders is specifically designed for campus and district leaders and will assist leaders in creating a culture of engagement and purposeful instruction!
Both trainings are interactive and fast-paced with opportunities to develop engagement strategies which will best serve your school/campus, opportunities to visit engaged classrooms for real-world application and strategies, and opportunities to promote a growth mindset for innovation and engagement!
ENGAGED! for Educators is specifically designed for classroom educators and will provide hands-on, meaningful observations, discussions, and strategies targeted specifically to your classroom.
ENGAGED! for Leaders is specifically designed for campus and district leaders and will provide hands-on, meaningful observations, discussions, and strategies targeted specifically at fostering growth mindset and student engagement on your school campus(es).
