Professional Development Schedule to Change

Even though spring has not yet sprung, change is in the air for Western Reserve Public Media’s schedule of professional development for the upcoming school year. Because of the amount of testing that occurs in each school district, the 2015-2016 professional development schedule will be offered during non-testing periods.

All three of our professional development sessions will kick off with a conference that features multiple training opportunities and includes lunch. The conferences will be held at our Kent facility from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and will feature opportunities to learn about the upcoming session’s face-to-face and online training opportunities.

We hope that this schedule change is more convenient for our educators in that it doesn’t conflict with standardized testing dates. For more information, visit our online workshop registration system at
