Teachers and Administrators,

SPS Now 2015, November 3rd Overview: Based on your positive feedback, the November event will have a similar format to August SPS Now in that you will have the opportunity to select sessions you would like to attend based on your interest and building focus. We will repeat many of the sessions offered in August, as well as offer “Level 2” sessions on the same topics so that you are able to dig deeper. Sessions will run from 8:00 - 11:00 at each high school with refreshments available beginning at 7:30.

2 Steps to Complete By October 16:

Step 1: Identify which sessions you would like to attend. Each teacher will select two sessions for SPS Now. Click the links below to determine the sessions offered for your position:

· Elementary Sessions

· Secondary Core (ELA, Math, Science, Social Studies) Sessions

· Specialty Sessions (K-12)

Step 2: Register for your SPS Now Session via Eventbrite. When you register, you will be asked to create an Eventbrite account if you do not have one already. By using Eventbrite, you will be able to change sessions (based on availability), view your session choices at any time, and view session details such as room numbers.
