Hopefully by now you’ve been able to pick up a copy of the latest (spring) edition of The Atlanta Educator. The occasional print publication was delivered to CLL staff and the schools over the course of this week, and features more amazing stories about APS’ transformation into a top-performing urban school district. You’ll be able to thumb through the pages and read articles on the Effective Teacher in Every Classroom Initiative, powered by a grant from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation; a comprehensive look at the chess programs engaging our elementary school students (pictured, above); profiles of members of our CLL staff, the Atlanta Board of Education, and APS veteran teachers, students and alumni; APS’ increasingly international flare; and visits from a certain (and impressed) U.S. education secretary.
What’s that, you say? You don’t have a print copy in front of you? Well, you’ve obviously got a computer, and so we’ve posted all of our Atlanta Educator features online with this trusty link. (Or download a PDF file here.) In fact you can check out ALL previous issues of the paper (in PDF form) through this link. Either way, we hope you’ll enjoy these stories, and help us spread the news about how APS is making a difference in students’ lives. Next up: our summer issue, which will celebrate our high school graduates.
