Anoka-Hennepin to hold SEED seminars for staff once again in 2019
(08/29/19) Back by popular demand and thanks to collaboration with Anoka-Hennepin Education Minnesota, Seeking Educational Equity and Diversity (SEED) seminars will be available to district staff during the 2019-20 school year. Watch the SEED hype video.
SEED is a nationally recognized project on Inclusive Curriculum, a staff development project for educators. SEED is in its 28th year of forming teacher-led faculty development seminars in public and private schools throughout the United States and in English speaking international schools.
SEED will be held at five sites this year, including Blaine High School, Champlin-Brooklyn Park Academy, Coon Rapids Middle School, Johnsville Elementary School with the fifth site being held at the union office in the Wells Fargo building at 3200 Main St. NW, Suite #360, in Coon Rapids.
Cohorts will meet once a month throughout the school year to take a deeper dive into equity and diversity issues. Through books, videos, activities, speakers, and discussion, staff will have the opportunity to examine how to improve the educational experience for all students and their families.
Staff who participate in SEED will earn 27 continuing education units. If interested in further SEED education opportunities, district staff have the opportunity to take four semester/or six quarter credits through St. Catherine University. Cost is $750, $375 due in October and May. Dates, times and instructor information are included in the learning management system via A-HConnect.
