Even PD is going virtual!

With the COVID-19 pandemic, teachers all over the country have had to teach virtually, and it looks like this might continue. To that end, Northern Buckeye has revamped some of our professional development offerings to help educators learn about technology, even when we can’t be there together.

We wanted to take this opportunity to share with you some of our virtual services. Remember, all of our professional learning is available at no additional cost for our member districts. Not sure if your district is a member? Check this list. read more
