By request, here is a narrative version of the PD Schedule for Back to School Week. As a reminder, all PD Events are available two ways all year: (1) the PD calendar on the Dashboard, and (2) this PD blog, which is typically sent out on Mondays for Friday PD. You can add the PD Calendar to Google Calendar so that it appears with your Google Calendar events, which I highly recommend. Please see me if you want help with that.
