Welcome Back to School!
The Department of Educational Services at Western Reserve Public Media welcomes you back for the 2014-2015 school year.
Over the summer we’ve been busy putting together programs and services that meet your needs and the needs of your teachers. The schedule of professional development can be found within this newsletter and also at http://www.westernreservepublicmedia.myworkshops.com. There you’ll find both face-to-face and online course offerings.
New and revised classes have been added to the schedule and many connect directly with Ohio’s new learning standards, PARCC and the Ohio Teacher Evaluation System (OTES).
We continue to offer additional savings on professional development opportunities through the service levels of our educational services contract. Superintendents across the service area have received the latest contract and we hope that your district will consider being a Basic or Comprehensive service level member. At these levels, you not only receive reduced rates on professional development both at our site in Kent and at your district, but your administrators will qualify for free tuition for professional development offered in Kent.
New this year at the Comprehensive level: Your district will receive free access to one of our online classes for up to 15 teachers.
We look forward to working with all of you this year and wish you best of luck in the new school year.
