Keynote Address Details
College is full of unspoken rules, expectations, and standards. Even academically proficient students can falter in college if they aren't aware of these rules--and the challenge is even greater for first-generation college students. Well-designed concurrent enrollment programs can help students understand the behavioral expectations of college and give them the opportunity to practice meeting these expectations, potentially increasing their likelihood of future college success. Melinda will explain why the "nonacademic" aspect of college is so important to academic success, identify key behavioral standards to which college students are held, and discuss why it is important for concurrent enrollment programs to help students experience these expectations as part of their college coursework.
A limited number of stipends are available for those not receiving a district stipend. The amount will be prorated for those not attending the full day. Return the request form by July 11 if you are a requesting a stipend from CollegeNow. You can type all of the necessary information on the form; however, we will need your actual signature, not a typed signature in order to process the payment.
CollegeNow professional development is co-sponsored by TST BOCES School Improvement Services and utilizes their MyLearningPlan system for tracking registration and completion.
