Recently, Edvantia offered a series of five, free, interactive webinars designed to help you tackle the problems that challenge your school or district every day. Each webinar in this informative series was hosted by one of Edvantia’s experts from its team of former teachers, principals, and state leaders.
The Appalachia Regional Comprehensive Center (ARCC) at Edvantia is pleased to announce the publication of a series of information briefs that offer insight into the issues and concepts important to state education agency leaders.
Executives and staff of Edvantia, Inc. today were joined by state officials, industry partners, and education leaders to celebrate the organization’s 45th anniversary, and dedicate its new corporate headquarters at the United Center in downtown Charleston.
Capping the day off with an open house reception to commemorate the occasion, attendees were invited to tour the new offices, learn about several key programs, and talk with Edvantia representatives about the organization’s impact, particularly in West Virginia.
UKNOW, the news service of the University of Kentucky, recently released an article, “Appalachian Science Initiative Shows Long-Term Results,” discussing the work of the Appalachian Rural Systemic Initiative (ARSI). The ARSI was a project of the National Science Foundation that sought to improve science and math education in the rural Appalachian counties of Kentucky, North Carolina, Ohio, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia. Much of the ARSI’s success is thanks to the work of Edvantia’s Keith Smith. Dr. Smith was involved in the initial development of the ARSI, served as its project director, and worked with some of those same communities as the project director for the Coalfield Rural Systemic Initiative.
