Region 10 Facilities
Based on public health data and the needs of our client schools, the Center is currently reopening the center’s buildings in a multi-stage process.
Training and Professional Development
Region 10 continues to provide professional development opportunities for educators in order to improve instruction in traditional classroom settings, in completely virtual settings, and in blended settings that include various types of at-home instruction.
General Professional Development
The full R10 training/workshop schedule is available now for events throughout the remainder of 2020. In-person events at Region 10 are limited on the schedule, however, all general professional development offerings are scheduled virtually. View the schedule on the Calendar of Events.
Virtual Instruction Support
To support educators with remote learning at-home instructional support resources were created in March. Most of these instructional supports and resources to our well-established Online Learning Center (OLC) a.k.a. MyProfessionalLearning.com.
In-Person On-Campus Trainings/Workshops
Under certain conditions in-person meetings in individual districts will be scheduled. The district must provide protocols to keep individuals safe. If district protocols are judged by Region 10 to be sufficiently compatible to R10 safety measures in effect for R10 personnel, then an in-person on-site training will be scheduled.
Online Learning Center
Through the OLC, (MyProfessionalLearning.com) we will continue developing and sharing resources to support remote and in-person instruction.
