Bennett selected to serve as NC Ready for Success Alignment Fellow
 
WELDON, N.C. – Halifax Community College (HCC) Mathematics Instructor John Bennett is one of more than 125 educators from across the state selected to serve as NC Ready for Success Alignment Fellows. NC Ready for Success is a cross-sector collaboration among the NC Community College System, the University of North Carolina, the NC Department of Public Instruction, and the NC Independent and Private Colleges and Universities.

The 2013-14 Alignment Fellows are highly effective school leaders in the subjects of mathematics and English language arts and come from K-12 schools, community colleges, public and private universities.

The fellows are tasked with creating suggestions and finding opportunities for further alignment between K-12 and postsecondary institutions as well as producing policy recommendations that support teaching and learning within each discipline. The work of the fellows will support ongoing alignment efforts across all of the state’s educational sectors and will be highlighted in upcoming summits in September 2014.

Fellows will work together in a series of regional Alignment Conversations to collect and compile recommendations to the chief academic officers of the NC Ready for Success cross-sector initiative. One such meeting was held on March 31 in Raleigh.

The over-arching goal of the group is to improve cross-sector alignment and offer recommendations for improved connections between the 11th and 12th grade years of high school and postsecondary options.
