SRI&ETTC Annual Report 2015-16
Program Update
The Southern Regional Institute (SRI) and Educational Technology Training Center (ETTC) has had a long and successful history in the delivery of professional development opportunities for preK-12 educators in the southern region and across the state of New Jersey. Nearly 10,000 classroom teachers, technology coordinators, support staff members and school administrators participate in programming provided by the SRI&ETTC each year on subjects including the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards, the new Common Core State Standards, instructional practices, computer
technologies, ESL
strategies, special
education, classroom
management, school
leadership and
governance, intervention
and referral services as
well as a variety of other
topics requested by
school personnel in
districts around the
state.
Housed in the School of Education at Stockton University, the SRI&ETTC is a voluntary consortium of 90+ school districts representing six counties in the southern region of the state. Through these partnerships, the SRI&ETTC has been able to build a unique organization that can be responsive to the needs of individual school districts as well as the needs and demands of the changing landscape of preK-12 education. Access to the services and programs of the SRI&ETTC is not limited to member districts. Requests for custom programming as well as open calendar registrations generate participation from districts in every county of New Jersey.
Instructors and trainers are drawn from a wide list of resources that include college faculty and staff, educational practitioners and
consultants, mental health professionals, and representatives of various municipal, county and state agencies.
The success of the SRI&ETTC can be attributed to several factors but most importantly, the SRI&ETTC has repeatedly demonstrated its ability to deliver programming to meet the needs of individual districts as well as the targeted goals of special projects through diverse programs such as Talent 21, Impact, the I&RS Technical Assistance Project, the Math Collaborative, Math and Science Partnerships,
EE4NJ, Teaching American History, Improving Teacher Quality Partnerships, Matrix, ACE Centers, Traumatic Loss Coalitions for Youth, GEAR UP and 21st Century Community Learning Centers.
The SRI&ETTC has grown considerably in its membership, workshop offerings, program registrations, and its scope of services over the past 19 years – all clear illustrations of the value SRI&ETTC provides to the educational community.
We look forward to celebrating the
20th Anniversary of our program during the next year and look forward to the continued participation of our partners and the educators who attend the workshops and events of the SRI&ETTC.
