Fast Forward instructor Amber Henyan of Chenango Valley displays her classroom plaque
Fast Forward held its annual Professional Development on Tuesday, Nov. 14. More than 100 college-credentialed instructors were on campus for a welcome and program update session, followed by discipline-specific break out sessions.
All Fast Forward instructors were given a SUNY Broome Fast Forward classroom sign as well. The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. The sign is setting apart their classroom from others, representing what is happening on the inside: college!
Numerous national and local research studies show that programs like Fast Forward increase high school graduation rates, improve college readiness and provide gains in college access, persistence and completion for a diverse group of students. We have proven this right here at SUNY Broome as well. Thank you to all involved for your partnership. Together, we are making a real difference!
