Due to the COVID-19 virus outbreak we are temporarily postponing all academies and professional development trainings effective immediately through April 15, 2020. Our goal is to provide quality PD in a safe environment. Our professional development staff will continue to be available to assist educators with their PD/Academy planning. We also have several fully online professional development opportunities listed on our home page.
