Halifax County Schools had over fifty teachers attend a mathematics boot camp Saturday. 

HCS Staff was given the opportunity to explore and strengthen practices, collaborate with colleagues, and complete independent tasks.

“It is time to look toward the fourth and final quarter of the school year. The fourth quarter is a time to play harder, see it through, and finish strong,” Superintendent Eric Cunningham said. “The mathematics boot camp was a great professional development opportunity for staff, and I look forward to having more implemented throughout the year."

Tyrana Battle, assistant superintendent of curriculum and instruction, said, “The mathematics boot camp focused on the eight mathematical strands and allowed teachers to collaborate with one another to help fill instructional gaps.”

Battle said resources were reviewed to determine what manipulatives are needed to facilitate instruction. “This was a great way for our teachers to look at vertical and horizontal alignment across grade spans. Teachers are able to scaffold instruction to meet the needs of individual students and learn techniques to assist with instructional delivery.”

One staff member said they enjoyed the boot camp. “Today's workshop was very informative. I learned several things I can take back to my school and show others in my grade and other grades. We even shared about reading and math Istation. Envision modules

were helpful, and I can continue those on my own. This helps because the push is on to get all my children proficient and fill any left gaps this year.”

Cunningham said, “Halifax County Schools are committed to driving accelerated achievement for all students to eliminate the achievement gap and low performing schools while increasing the well-being of students and professional development for teachers and other school personnel.”
