Distance Learning Professional Development

Following up on professional learning opportunities launched on August 12, schedules are now available on the September 3 option for the synchronous trainings that are part of the Required Professional Learning; these are available. Please review this information to plan for professional learning over the next few weeks. Additionally, information on how to obtain clock hours is now available under required professional learning!

In collaboration with HEA, we have shifted November conference days to September to support the launch of distance learning. The first three days of school (Sept 3, 4 and 8) will be family connection days. Half of this time will be dedicated to connecting with families and students. The remaining 10.5 hours is for professional learning to support distance learning.

Staff who engage in the required professional learning in August can take equivalent time off (10.5 hrs) on September 3, 4 or 8 in exchange. (Attending August dates will not result in additional pay.)

Descriptions and calendars are below for each opportunity.
