but necessary, decision to cancel all in-person seminars and conferences for the 2020/2021
Health and safety are what matter most right now, which is why we made the difficult,
school year, including the SDE National Conference in Las Vegas next summer (July 2021).
So, we are committed to offering a wide range of virtual experiences that
you can engage in from the comfort and safety of your own home.
Are you still looking for engaging professional development during this time of online learning?
SDE is here to support you!
Although we cannot connect physically to share ideas and practices, SDE still has online
professional development opportunities to help keep the learning going in your school or district.
