On November 5 and 6 the Christian Coalition for Educational Innovation (CCEI) held their annual meeting at Cairn University. Over 30 Christian schools, from all over the country, were represented at the meeting.
The purpose of this year’s annual meeting was to discuss innovation ideas among CCEI leaders, learn from the expertise of Cairn University, Charter Oak Research, and Joshua Expeditions, and continue to develop relationships and networks between schools and organizations.
Dr. Todd J. Williams spoke to the group on Innovation and Mission. Michael Mauk from Joshua Expeditions shared about Interim and School Collaboration Opportunities. Paul Neal and David Urban, of Charter Oak Research, led a session on Market Research and Enrollment Strategies for a Sustainable Future. The Christian Coalition for Educational Innovation (CCEI) began in 2009 with the hope of connecting Christian schools that conduct “Interim” programs. Early in 2010, approximately 15 schools met in Orlando to discuss the possibilities of collaborating and partnering. As an outcome of this meeting, CCEI was created. CCEI now exists to continue the “Interim” dialog, explore educational innovations and share best practices.
