The Professional Development Center at Eagle Rock will continue education renewal work in collaboration with the New Mexico Center for School Leadership in Albuquerque, NM on June 13 in an effort to convince charitable foundations to consider metrics outside of the traditional standardize-test approach, we’ll be facilitating a meeting between local schools and the Marshall L. and Perrine D. McCune Charitable Foundation to examine the evidence collection efforts thus far (in community engagement) and determine a second area to focus on. Participating schools include ACE Leadership, American Sign Language Academy, Health Leadership High School, South Valley Academy, Amy Biehl High School and Native American Community Academy.
