APSRC Launches Achieving By Changing Initiative

APSRC Launches Achieving By Changing Initiative

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – The Arkansas Public School Resource Center is pleased to announce the launch of its new pilot initiative, Achieving By Changing.  Also known as ABC, Achieving By Changing is a systematic approach to implementing the Common Core State Standards.

ABC is a three year initiative designed to support public schools as they transition to the Common Core State Standards.  The focus of ABC is to change classroom practice to prepare our teachers to meet the rigorous standards of the Common Core.  All strategies that will be implemented through ABC are research-based.  Open to any public school district that is a member of APSRC, ABC is a collaborative network of schools who will share their learning across the ABC partnership.

Press conference to address UALR Benton campus

Press conference to address UALR Benton campus

From an email to Today's THV from Terry Benham of Go Benton:

On Thursday, December 15 at 8:45 am a Press Conference will be held at the Benton Municipal Complex, City Council Chambers, for a special announcement affecting the future of Benton and the expansion of it’s UALR campus.

On November 8, 2011, Benton made a strong statement about the importance of investing in the future by overwhelmingly passing the extension of the A&P tax initiative to build a multi-million dollar Event Center, an action which will stimulate economic development.

When economic development is partnered with higher education, the result is a stronger foundation for progress and an economy which fosters opportunity for its citizens.
