Professional learning continues to be a high priority for Region 6. We welcome your ideas and suggestions in order to provide high quality and relevant opportunities for our members. Thanks to our region partners, we are continuing to offer professional learning events virtually no cost to members and at a minimal charge to non-members. For the 2023-24 school year, we are planning both virtual and in-person events to meet the current needs of our members. If you would like to be involved in planning professional development in Region 6, contact our Vice President of Staff Development, Christina Filios.
