EAST Administrator & Stakeholder Training is designed for administrators of the local EAST program. This interactive training covers some of the historical foundations of EAST, the unique traits of the EAST environment, events, training, budget, policies, procedures, and other helpful information to better support the local EAST program. Workshop attendance is required by administrative representatives of new EAST programs, Arkansas EAST Upgrade recipients, new building administrators, and administrators who have not attended in the past three years but who actively oversee an EAST program.
Any administrator or stakeholder responsible for the local EAST program (i.e. budgeting, scheduling, daily program operations, student and facilitator training, facilitator observations, etc.) should attend this training.
