Monthly virtual professional learning sessions are held for all participants beginning October 2022-June 2023 in the Innovation Zones. The learning sessions are scheduled on the second Wednesday of each month from 10 am-12 pm (dates listed below). Each participating district from the System Design Zone and Innovative Learning Design Zone identifies up to 3 professional learning lead facilitators (e.g. educators, stakeholders) to engage in all monthly learning sessions. The expectation is for the district level lead facilitators to support professional learning with educators and stakeholders in their district. Each monthly session will support unpacking the essential questions with a special focus during the 2022-2023 school year on assessment for learning strategies, inclusive of Real World Learning. Collaborative Network participants will have one designated representative with one designated alternate.

All presentations (video and slides) will be posted on the Success-Ready Student Network website following the meeting. Participants are encouraged to use these materials to support local professional learning.

Dates for the monthly sessions are:

  • Oct. 12, 2022

  • Nov. 9, 2022

  • Dec. 14, 2022

  • Jan. 11, 2023
