CASDA brings 700 educators together for regional conference

October 14, 2014


CASDA, in partnership with the Washington County School District Collaborative, brought together more than 700 K-12 educators for a regional conference on October 10 at Hudson Falls High School.

The day-long conference featured teachers and administrators from eight school districts, including Hudson Falls, Hartford, Argyle, Granville, Salem, Fort Ann, Cambridge and Fort Edward. It provided educators the opportunity to meet with colleagues from other districts in order to collaborate, discuss shared areas of interest and address common problems found in the classroom.

The conference included both morning and afternoon sessions. The morning session featured 30 workshops taught by CASDA faculty and WSWHE BOCES staff. These workshops provided attendees with the opportunity to hear presentations on current practices in education ranging from differentiated instruction to understanding common core data to using technology in the classroom. The afternoon session was designed for specific grade level departments and brought together educators to discuss current practices and problems of practice at each grade level. Each session was facilitated by teacher leaders participating in the Strengthening Teacher Leader Effectiveness (STLE) Grant.


The Washington County School District Collaborative grew out of a 2012 study facilitated by CASDA that looked at ways to leverage collaboration and sharing among the districts. The following school year an advisory committee was formed between the districts and has since worked to strengthen teacher leadership, share services and bring distance learning to each district. WSWHE BOCES has also served as an important partner to the collaborative by providing essential services including distance learning capabilities and a chief information officer.
