Professional Learning

Explore Our Professional Learning Opportunities

The 2020-21 professional learning opportunities provide an increasing inter-connectedness between the academic, behavioral, and social/emotional supports to keep you learning, growing, and working toward the relentless pursuit of whatever works in the life of a child.

Participate in just one course or attend a pathway that provides in--depth knowledge in a specific area. Several pathways provide a blended approach to face-to-face learning and online learning.

As always, all of the professional learning opportunities we offer are supported by research and are provided by specialists in their field. We believe high quality professional learning will enhance your teaching practices and greatly benefit your students.
