EdCamp JoCo



Johnston County Public Schools will be hosting a one-day conference for all educators on Saturday, March 4, called EdCamp JoCo.

The event will be held at West Johnston High School from 8 a.m. - 4 p.m. EdCamp JoCo is a free event that appeals to educators from all walks of life.

The goal of EdCamp is to provide an innovative form of professional development for educators in order to improve job satisfaction, increase workforce retention, and impact student learning.

EdCamp JoCo is an “unconference” with the day's agenda being driven by the participants. Educators identify topics they wish to discuss and learn about as they arrive at the event, and their interests help create the schedule of the day. Participants share best practices and ask questions of all persons in the room through an open exchange of information and ideas.

To register for this event visit the EdCamp JoCo website or use the registration link below:
