Dear ProStart Teacher,
As the 2015-2016 school year approaches, we want to provide an update on Virginia ProStart and the VHTA Education Foundation. We are excited to be your partner in the continued, strong ProStart curriculum here in the Commonwealth.
The search for a Director of Education and Workforce Development and ProStart Coordinator has commenced and we anticipate being able to name someone very soon. In the interim Ann Campbell is working with us in the VHTA office, and can assist you with any questions you may have. Ann will also be joining us at the upcoming VATFACS Conference. As you may be aware, we have a ProStart Essentials Session scheduled for Monday, July 27 from 2:15-3:45pm at the VATFACS conference, as well as, an information table during the Curriculum Showcase on Tuesday, July 28 from 9:15-11:15am. We hope to see you during one of these times.
As we approach the next phase of VA ProStart, we are in the process of forming an Advisory Panel to provide input and guidance to VHTA and VA ProStart staff to make this program even stronger and more vibrant. VA ProStart is not successful without you and your strong commitment to the students.
Plans for the Fall Teacher Training are progressing and we anticipate announcing the details very soon. Please feel free to reach out if you have any thoughts on this event to make it even better than before. VA ProStart is really a partnership between you and our team, so please provide suggestions and ideas on ways to enhance the program or our partnership.
Our new VA ProStart Facebook page has been launched and we encourage you to visit it soon at Facebook.com/VAProStart. If you have news or information you think would be good to share on either our Facebook Page or Twitter Account (Twitter.com/VA ProStart), please let us know.
As we move forward it is essential that we maintain open lines of communication. We have listed our contact information below. Call us at any time with questions, comments or suggestions. We are both very committed to VA ProStart and providing you with the tools you need to educate your students.
