The purpose of this training is to explore options for professional development moving forward. We will redefine what it means to help teachers improve, reevaluate existing supports and programs and reinvent how we support effective teaching at scale. This is intended for Peconic Teacher Center Policy Board members and a portion of it will be public. These will count as the mandatory meetings for the year.
