Elementary Education serves approximately 142 elementary schools and 7,930 students throughout the eight conferences in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee. We work in partnership with local conference associate directors of elementary education, grades K-8 to set a clear vision for implementing the Adventist EDGE. It is our goal to foster a spiritual relationship with each conference. We seek to understand the varied needs of and provide support for individual conferences as they implement on-going comprehensive school improvement. While facilitating elementary advisories, we collaborate on a variety of areas such as Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment. We provide support and resources to ensure that we help create a culture that reflects the philosophy and goals of the Adventist EDGE; one in which Christ is truly glorified and students are not only prepared to succeed in this life but also be prepared for the life to come.
