Social Justice and Equity in Schools PLC

Offered by: 
Professional Development

As part of the Social Justice and Equity Initiative at the Collaborative, we are hosting a PLC for educators and administrators from our member districts, and for CES employees. This monthly PLC will provide the space and time for participants to explore issues of social justice in schools. Participants will have the opportunity to develop support and inspiration networks across districts and schools with other educators, administrators and advocates.

Participants are encouraged to come to all meetings, if possible. There is no charge for participation.

Certificates of attendance and PDPs are available. Please note: you must register here in order to receive a certificate or PDPs.
