UDL Training

The UDL Summer Training for Year 2 will be offered on two separate occasions. Each session will consist of a two-day set and the training for both sessions will be identical. Teachers are encouraged to attend one of the two training sessions in order to stay abreast of critical information connected to our systemic professional development plan for Universal Design for Learning. The following session dates should be listed in My Learning Plan for UDL Summer Professional Development:

July 24, 2018 & July 25 2018

August 14, 2018 & August 15, 2018

The sessions will run from 8:00 AM to 2:30 PM with a ½ hour for lunch. All trainings will be held in Conference Rooms A& B at the Board of Education. Any change in location will be communicated as soon as possible. One of these two days of training can be used to satisfy the FLEX Day requirement.

You can contact Mrs. Cheryl O’Neal, Mrs. Tracie Bartemy or Mr. Tom Davis if you have any questions.
