The KCM is proud to support Kentucky Math Interventionists! This collegial learning and support opportunity is open to all Kentucky K-8 math intervention teachers who want to grow as professionals and share their knowledge, successes and struggles with fellow math intervention teachers.   
 
COURSE TITLE: Kentucky Math Interventionist Collegial Support     

COURSE DESCRIPTION: 

This Collegial Support Group for Kentucky Math Interventionists includes the following: 

* 7 one-hour monthly ZOOM meetings where participants can interact with fellow math interventionists and learn from KCM Regional Consultant Lisa Riggs and other special guest speakers.
* A monthly newsletter filled with teacher tips and intervention resources will be emailed to all registered Kentucky math interventionists.  
Active participants will receive KCM Math Teacher Support Kits filled with books and manipulatives to support their intervention work.
* Because virtual is great but in-person is better, the KCM will hold a special, invitation-only meet and greet session for this group at the KCM Annual Math Conference in March 2024 (date and time TBD). 


COST: FREE for Kentucky math interventionists
LOCATION: Virtual ZOOM meetings

There is no registration limit for this collegial support group. Please share this professional learning event with any Kentucky math interventionists you know. 

All registered participants will receive the monthly newsletter and the ZOOM meeting link via an email from KCM Regional Consultant Lisa Riggs. Those emails may go to your junk or spam folder so check there regularly after registering for this event. 

The KCM asks that participants in the monthly ZOOM meetings list their full name in the ZOOM meeting - or their first initial and last name - so the KCM can record attendance. Participants in the monthly ZOOM meetings will be emailed a KCM Attendance Certificate for each session they attend,

2023-24 FLOYD COUNTY DISTRICT SUPPORT 
  • LOCATION = Floyd County Schools District Office, 442 KY Rt. 550, Eastern, KY 
  • CONTACT =  Serena Anderson, Assistant Superintendent. Serena Anderson retired June 2023. New contact is Kathy Shepherd.
  • COST = Serena Anderson was invoiced via non-member dues invoice #1711 for all the the Floyd County District Support Training; individual participants were NOT invoiced. This invoice was paid in April 2023.   
  • TIME = 8:30 am – 3:30 pm (Lunch break from 11:30 am – 12:30 pm)
  • DATES = This Training is a 3-part series. KCM will lead training session in February 2023, October 2023 (was originally scheduled for September 2023) and February 2024. 
GRADES K-2 KAS & COMP PRIMARY 
KCM Facilitator = Julie Adams
K-2 Training will have 29 participants per email from Heather Hackworth and Serena Anderson to Kelly DeLong on 1/9/23

Session 1: Monday, February 13, 2023. 
  • Materials for all 3 days driven from NKU to Floyd County on 2/1/23 by NKU. 2 boxes per participant - 1 smaller KCM box containing copies and books and more, and 1 larger EAI materials box. Only 21 teachers participated but Floyd County was given all 29 sets of boxes so they have 8 sets of 2 boxes that were not used on February 13, 2023 that could be given to new teachers who join Floyd County in 2023.    
Session 2: Friday, October 27: 8 am - 3 pm at the District Office.
  • Was originally scheduled for Sept 6 by Rachel Crider from Floyd County, but was changed on 8/25/23 by Kathy Shepherd
  • Only 12 teachers attended - 8 who attended session 1 in Feb and 4 teachers who had not attended session 1
  • Floyd County Schools could not find the 16 boxes left over from Session 1 in February 2023 so new teachers did not have materials during the session or to take with them.
  • Kathy Shepherd apologized for the issues with Session 2. She said 2 schools scheduled other activities for their teachers on Oct 27 and so their teachers did not attend session 2. She is continuing to look for the lost boxes from February. Each participant gets 2 boxes - so there are 8 2-box sets missing.  

Session 3: Friday, February 9, 2024
*Was originally scheduled for Feb 16, 2024, but was changed on 8/25/23 to February 9, 2024 by Kathy Shepherd.

2/12/24: The 2024 KCM Conference is now full. If you wish to be added to the WAIT LIST for this event, click here and complete the WAIT LIST form. Should any spots become available, we will contact math educators from the WAIT LIST in the order they signed up on it.

2024 KCM Conference 

Each year, the Kentucky Center for Mathematics (KCM) brings together math educators from Kentucky and across the United States for two days of wonderful professional learning. The KCM's annual math conference is one of the best conferences for math educators in the United States. Attendees learn from nationally recognized keynote speakers and choose from over 60 breakout sessions over two days to grow professionally, recharge mentally, and rejuvenate emotionally. The KCM expects to sell-out again in 2024, which means 600 educators will gather together in March to connect, share, inform, support and inspire one another as they share their desire to improve mathematics education, their own teaching skills, and their students' abilities to succeed. We hope you will join us!

REGISTRATION CONFIRMATION EMAIL:
Please note that anyone who successfully completes their registration for the 2024 KCM Conference will receive a registration confirmation email from kcm@nku.edu. This email, because it will have a copy of your invoice attached, often goes to the recipient's junk or spam folder. Please check your junk and spam folders regularly after you register for emails from the KCM about this event. 

IMPORTANT CHANGE REGARDING KCM CONFERENCE INVOICES:
Your 2024 KCM Conference invoice must be paid BEFORE the conference! Your 2024 KCM Conference invoice must be paid BEFORE the conference! Payment is due no later than 45 days after registration or before the start of this event - whichever comes first.    
  • Anyone who is told by their school, school district or organization that is not possible, must contact the KCM at 859-572-7690 before coming to the conference to discuss their situation. Often this is just a misunderstanding of what the school, school district or organization needs before they can submit payment.   
  • When you check-in at Conference, if your registration fee has not been paid, you will need to provide payment at that time; the KCM will accept payments by check or credit card. No cash will be accepted. The KCM will also accept a Purchase Order and will contact the issuer of the Purchase Order to verify that payment will be made against that Purchase Order in the coming week.

KCM REGISTRATION FEE CANCELATION POLICY:
  • Once you register, your registration fee cannot be canceled or waived after Friday, January 19, 2024.
  • If you register and then wish to cancel your registration, you must call the KCM at 859-572-7690 or email us at kcm@nku.edu before January 20, 2024, to have your registration voided and your registration fee waived.
  • If you need to cancel for any reason after January 19, 2024, you/your school/your school district/your organization should find someone to attend in your place as your registration fee will not be waived and must be paid. Contact the KCM in this situation so your registration can be updated with your replacement's information. 
  • For an unexpected illness or unforeseen problem that keeps you from attending on March 4 and 5, 2024, you must contact the KCM as soon as you are able. Those situations will be handled on a case-by-case basis.
