Happy New (school) Year!
Editor: Dr. Amy Schlessman-Frost
Resolve to Attend
National Alternative Education Conference in October!
Make a New (fiscal) Year resolution for you, your faculty & staff, and colleagues to share in a one of its kind staff development experience.

The National Alternative Education is the best PD opportunity for you and other alternative educators. In fact, much of the information is valuable for your colleagues in Title 1 or even traditional educators as they realize how important it is to learn about topics like SEL and equity in education. Please share this email with others, who would benefit by attending the conference.

The sessions offer PD about:
