Hello Fellow Life-Long Learners,
Please find a DRAFT schedule of our two October INSET days with Dr. Kathy Perez here. Though some of the wording and focus of individual sessions may change, the overall structure will likely stay the same. The context of this work is to continue to hone our craft around differentiation as we seek to personalize the learning experience for each of our students. A worthy endeavor, for sure!
Please see SET with any questions about INSET at this time.
Hello all! Please note the change in location.
