WARREN, Ohio — The first of a new four-part educational series designed to develop skills, processes and resources to ensure that organizations can thrive in a global environment will be held Feb. 21. The session, “Aligning Mathematics with After-School Curriculum,” facilitated by Dr. Kim Yoak, is sponsored by Eastern Ohio Education Partnership in partnership with The Raymond John Wean Foundation.

The 90-minute session will show how to implement engaging, entertaining, district-aligned mathematics curriculum into existing programs, said Stephanie Shaw of the EOEP.

Yoak spent a decade as a K-12 mathematics consultant for Stow-Munroe Falls City School District and now serves as an independent specialist working with the Warren City School District and across Ohio, focusing on empowering students and educators with deep learning experiences in mathematics.

Subsequent sessions will be held on social emotional learning, capacity building, and other topics.

This series was created to support the alignment of the Wean Foundation’s grantees and the work that takes place in local school districts. Corrie Adams will share with participants the foundation’s educational opportunity strategic priority.

Eastern Ohio Education Partnership is nonprofit pre-school to postsecondary organization serving students and families in Mahoning and Trumbull counties. The partnership is a network of community leaders from the education, business, faith-based, social service, nonprofit, and philanthropic sectors.

The workshop will begin at 10 a.m. in the Warren City Schools Board of Education Technology Lab on High Street. Light refreshments will be served. For more information, call 330 675 7623 or visit this website.
