Region 4 Science–Professional Development Calendar

This document is new and designed for instructional leaders to use as they determine the professional learning needs of their teachers. It lists all of the workshops we're currently providing. The first few pages are organized by grade band and include detailed descriptions of each workshop. The last few pages display a grid that highlights key considerations including workshop length, ideal audience, and focus areas. Feel free to view, download, and let us know what you need!
