On behalf of Alexandria Public Schools, we are so excited to host the 2019 Ignite Inspire Innovation Conference in the beautiful Alexandria Lakes Area! This conference is an offshoot of  EdLeader21, focusing on Innovation and Best Practices in Education, along with work around the Four C’s, Portrait/Profile of a Graduate, and Project-Based Learning (PBL). We look forward to this purposeful time in which to share, collaborate, and deepen our learning.

Genius Hour has made its way into many classrooms as a way for students to learn more about the concepts they are passionate about.  Even though we've looked at it from many different angles, we haven't found a way to give our teachers 20% of their weekly time for Genius Hour.  This led us to the idea of TEACHER Genius Hour.  Teachers at Albany Area Schools have the opportunity to pursue their passions while earning a stipend or a board approved credit towards a lane change.  Maybe this program will work for your district?
