Spring Regional Training for Arts Education Essential Standards

The target audiences for the Common Core and Essential Standards regional content sessions include 1-2 people who attended the 2011 Summer Institute. If the RESA can accommodate, districts and charters may send additional arts education content teachers. RESA Directors and Professional Development Leads have each regional PD calendar. Contact the NCDPI Professional Development Lead (http://www.ncpublicschools.org/profdev/directory) or your local RttT coordinator for questions.
