Welcome Back to School From Our Department of Educational Services

Recently, area superintendents and principals received informational pamphlets and contracts in the mail for educational technology services available through Western Reserve Public Media. We’re excited to continue to offer FREE PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT SESSIONS for the coming school year at our facility in Kent to superintendents and building principals. These sessions take advantage of a COMPREHENSIVE or BASIC service contract. As a district superintendent or building administrator, feel free to take as many classes in Kent with your Comp- or Basic-level contract (minus any technology fees and based upon an adequate number of class enrollees) this coming school year, absolutely FREE. Please look for that mailing and discuss the possibilities with your staff. An educational services contract with Western Reserve Public Media is a great deal and makes sense as your district deals with developing and delivering quality professional development to your staff. To find a copy of the latest Western Reserve Public Media Educational Services contract, go to

Due to budgetary constraints, our TechKnowledgy Newsletter will no longer be printed, but will be replaced with a quarterly flyer highlighting our programs and professional development schedule. Area superintendents and principals received our latest professional development schedule in our recent mailing and we’ve asked that you take an opportunity to post these flyers in your staff break room as well as distribute them to your district curriculum director. We will also be mailing flyers to each of your principals and superintendent on a quarterly basis during the coming school year. Our online professional development registration system is still available with the latest offerings at We will also be updating our website on a weekly basis with information regarding our professional development schedule, program offerings and conference schedule. Please direct your attention to for the latest information from our Department of Educational Services.

We will continue to offer these monthly email blasts highlighting what is happening with Western Reserve Public Media’s Department of Educational Services. If you know of anyone else who should be receiving our mailings and our email blasts, please send an email to and include their names and email addresses.

Here’s wishing you a great school year!
