Awesome workshop guys! I am so excited (and overwhelmed) by the instructional tools you introduced. Very well presented and with great enthusiasm. I am interested in setting up eMints training/mentoring for 2008-09 to help me and colleagues put a lot of this technology to use. Thanks!

Sean, see if you can share your experience with peers and your principal to gauge interest. I would be happy to visit any school in the district that is interested in starting up a cohort next year.

I do have to remind people that this is a Title IID grant so only certain schools can qualify. The qualifying criteria is that the school meets the economically disadvantaged guideline as determined based on percentage of free and reduced lunch in your school. If you don't meet that guideline, you will qualify for services if your school is on the AYP list as not meet annual yearly progress.

If you think you qualify and you would like me to come visit to share info with people, please sent me an email.
