Professional Development

HomeProfessional Development

In August, 175 educators participated in a two-day conference on Student Mental Health co-sponsored by NEC and SEEM.

Professional Development that strives to provide learning opportunities of excellence for educators and professionals to enable them to develop the knowledge, skills and practices necessary to meet the learning needs of all students.

WORKSHOPS AND CONFERENCES

Workshops and full-day conferences provide an opportunity for educators and professionals to enhance their knowledge base on topics relating to education, special education, behavioral health and youth issues while also providing an opportunity for networking among colleagues. All trainings are facilitated by presenters with expertise in their field. Workshop and conference selections are based on needs assessment from our member districts and our collaborative. Requests are highly regarded in the planning of all professional and family programs.
