Ritenour Professional Development Opportunities – Summer 2017

Ritenour has several opportunities for professional development this summer and prior to the beginning of school next August: 

  • Ritenour Summer Learning Series (June 6-9, 2017)
    Sessions focus on support for Math, English Language Arts (ELA), Science and Social Studies educators (ELL teachers and interventionists will find benefit from attending as well). Participants will be compensated. 
  • Model BEST Year One (June 26-30 or July 17-21, 2017)
    New teachers will only need to attend one of the two sessions.
  • PLC Implementation Cohort (July 20-21, 2017)
