In support of the 2018 Tricentennial Commission’s community engagement efforts, Homer A. Plessy Community School (“Plessy School”) will host the 2018 New Orleans Tricentennial Education Summit. We invite you to submit a proposal for the Summit, which will be held on March 10, 2018 at Homer A. Plessy Community School, 721 St Philip St, New Orleans, LA 70116.

The New Orleans Tricentennial Education Summit will offer educators hands-on, innovative approaches to classroom instruction that directly link to New Orleans’ 300th Anniversary. These one hour workshops will be presented by knowledgeable facilitators and will cover an array of topics that integrate the arts, science, math and ELA with the history of New Orleans for either upper or lower school educators. This is your opportunity to share your expertise and tap your creativity by developing an original workshop session for presentation at the New Orleans Tricentennial Education Summit.
