NCI Instructors Can Cross-Train Across Districts

Despite what you might have heard, all NCI Instructors in Oakland County working under the umbrella of Oakland Schools can conduct a training in any district across Oakland County. In addition, instructors can train participants from any district in Oakland County. CPI recently updated their records, listing Oakland Schools as the base of employment for all Oakland County Instructors. Please contact Karen Rusniak with any questions.
