We will hold 1 seminar each week for each of the grade level bands: K-2, 3-5, 6-8. The content topics will be posted two weeks before and teachers and parents can register for each seminar. We will host past seminars on our website for access at anytime for teachers and parents through June. During each 30-minute seminar teachers and parents can ask questions using the Zoom ‘group chat’ section. If the questions are not answered during the seminar, we will attempt to address them in up-coming seminars or on social media.
We will continue to conduct professional development with teachers. These sessions will be set up by the district and will include multiple grade level meetings from 15 to 30 minutes via Zoom. Each session should include grade level teachers and specialists. We will use these sessions to answer specific questions from that team.Schedule Virtual PD Session Here
