What happens at PD Saturdays?

Our goal with Professional Development Saturdays (PD Saturdays) is to provide corps members with the opportunity to come together as a community to deepen relationships, grow their instructional capacity, and sustain their efforts as leaders in their classroom, school, and community. This fall, we are differentiating our programming for 2015 and 2014 corps members to help ensure that each corps members:

2014 CMS

  1. Workshops
  2. DEI Series
  3. 2014 CM Workshops

2015 CMS

  1. Workshops
  2. DEI Series
  3. 2015 CM Workshops

Workshops:

Workshops are open to 2015 and 2014 corps members. These one-time workshops (indicated in orange on the SCHED system, as shown below ) are designed to help increase corps members' instructional capacity. All corps members can take a maximum of 1 orange workshop, but are not required to take one.

DEI Series:

DEI (Diversity, Equity, & Inclusiveness) Series are open to 2015 and 2014 corps members. These year-long series (indicated in blue on the SCHED system, as shown below) are designed to help corps members grow in their identity development. When you select a DEI course, you are agreeing to attend that DEI course at the same time and with the same facilitators for the entire year. All corps members can take a maximum of 2 DEI Series, but are required to enroll in at least one. Keep in mind that if you choose to enroll in two DEI Series, you will be unable to take workshops for the remainder of the year.
