Here to Serve Your Needs

Welcome back! We hope you had a restful, relaxing summer and are ready to get back to all of the students anxiously awaiting your return!

Welcome back! We hope you had a restful, relaxing summer and are ready to get back to all of the students anxiously awaiting your return! 

Members of the Teaching & Learning team have been given the opportunity to conduct on-site professional development at member schools, plan and prepare regional professional days for teachers across the state and deliver support for our schools engaged in their personalized learning journey. We are grateful we got to play a part in all the learning and preparation that has gone into a successful start of the school year. If you are still looking for any last-minute support, please reach out for our availability. If we can’t make it on site, perhaps we can help you plan your own session addressing one of our course offerings. 

After the first few weeks of school, we know the hard work really begins, and our team is here to support you. We want you to feel the value of your membership, whether that be a monthly visit from a regional developer, attending one of the scheduled trainings at our facility or scheduling our team to train on a subject of your choosing at your site. To support you even further, the Teaching and Learning team is working hard to expand our online offerings. There are many ONLINE COURSES available for you and your staff to complete hosted within the members-only section of our website. Many of these courses were created to fulfill the requirements for the SDE-mandated PD trainings, but we will be adding many more. Check back often for added courses!

For your PD scheduling needs throughout the school year, please complete the request form HERE. We will follow up as soon as we receive your request.

Cheers to the 2017-2018 school year!
