Hillsborough and Idlewild are back on the lecture circuit
Back again for a second season is EPIC, the Hillsborough school administrator lecture series coordinated in partnership with Idlewild Baptist Church.
Despite backlash last year, and ongoing questions from the American Civil Liberties Union, the district teamed up with the Lutz megachurch for another series of motivational sessions for principals and assistant principals. [EPIC stands for Equipping Principals In the Community.]
The workshops, which begin Monday, are not compulsory. And, district leaders say, they draw top-drawer speakers for evenings that the school employees enjoy.
The theme is timely this year: "Developing the Talent of the Staff, Staff Morale and Culture."
Monday's program will run from 5 to 7 p.m. at the distruct's Instructional Services Center at 40th Street near Columbus Avenue.
The headline speaker is Assistant U.S. Attorney Stacie B. Harris.
