Please note the deadline for your commitment: September 6, 2013! Please copy (PDF preferred) me your “Intent to Participate” form.
Quickie background and additional info:
- Funding to coordinate CTSO and CTE Showcase used to be separate funding, but in recent years that funding have been incorporated into each school’s WSF allotment. You can also use 15849 funds if the activity is approved in your OYP. Perkins fund cannot be used.
- CTSO is set for February 19-20, 2014 (Wednesday & Thursday) at Hawaii Convention Center.
- CTE Showcase is set for March 31 – April 2, 2014. I will be your pack mule to carry projects over, but schools should consider sending at least one teacher to collect items on the last day. We can discuss the logistics as we get closer to the date.
- Our inaugural West Hawaii CTE Showcase (staged as part of the Ocean & Earth and Family Fun Day sponsored by the Kona Kohala Chamber of Commerce and Kealakehe High) in April was successful, and I would like to do it again if there is interest. However, Linda Jeffrey advised that the Chamber of Commerce will not sponsor it again in 2014, and Kealakehe does not have the funding or personnel to take it on. Thus we are in search of a host… Let me know your thoughts.
