You’re invited: Professional Learning Communities of Practice

Now that virtual instruction is underway for most school districts, education leaders are figuring out how to keep a pulse on remote teams and provide responsive support for educators and coaches.

You are cordially invited to collaborate on these conversations in May’s Communities of Practice series. These are not webinars but small-group active discussions where you’ll network with fellow leaders in and outside of your region, and dig into shared solutions for an uncertain fall.
