Admin PD Opportunity

NJPSA, NJASA, and FEA are sponsoring what looks to be a pretty nice model of leader PD that is ongoing and supportive. As you know, some money has been set aside for admin PD this year and I think this would be a great opportunity for a group of Madison leaders to attend together. If you are interested, please let me know by August 1.


Please note that only Cohort 3 has availability remaining.
