Practice Problem 1 
Spread of Infectious Disease

Estimations indicate that more than 52 million people fall ill from infectious diseases around the world each year. Seventeen million people die annually from these diseases. With the advent of affordable global travel, infectious diseases may spread rapidly over a large area across the globe. Vaccines and treatments are often ineffective or expensive to manufacture.

How can the spread of infectious disease be controlled? How can the health of people around the world be safeguarded?

Workshop introduces P2 tools to Virginia coaches

This year's VAFPS training workshop was conducted in conjunction with Future Problem Solving Program International in an effort to bring new problem solving strategies to both new and experienced coaches.

P2 stands for Process + Program. Participants explored how the Future Problem Solving Program (FPSP) & the Creative Problem Solving process (CPS) can work together to prepare students for the 21st Century.

The VIEW, an assessment of problem solving style developed by Edwin C. Selby, Donald J. Treffinger, and Scott G. Isaksen, was developed specifically for the purpose of helping individuals and teams efficiently and effectively solve problems, manage change, and promote innovation. The training explored coach’s response to problem solving and how this impacts working with students. 

The workshop was conducted over two days in mid-August at Powhatan High School in Powhatan County.
