Dear PACT Members,
It is the nature of teaching that we sometimes have our feet firmly planted in one year and our gaze starting to turn towards the next. The PACT board understands that many of our schools are starting to put together calendars for the 2021-22 school year and that teachers may be starting to think about what continued education opportunities they will pursue next year as well. As such, the PACT board is pleased to give you the following announcement regarding our Professional Development Days (PDD) for the 2021-22 school year.
PACT PDDs will remain virtual in 2021-22. Our Fall PDD will occur over two days, Wednesday Oct 20th and Thursday October 28th. Two different 2 hour workshops will be held. Sessions will be from 3-5pm and 7-9pm on both days. You can attend both 2 hour sessions in one day for a total of 4 hours, or attend one session on each day for the same total of 4 hours. Our Spring PDD will run similarly, occurring on Thursday March 24th and Wednesday March 30th. Spring sessions will also be from 3-5pm and 7-9pm. We project the cost for your annual membership, which includes attendance at all 8 hours of training, will be Fifty Dollars ($50).
While a return to in-person training is PACT’s ultimate goal, our board has decided that the safest option for our membership and our presenters is to once again offer virtual training options for the 2021-22 school year. Please put these dates on your calendar. We look forward to continuing our shared journey of professional development in 2021-22 and beyond.
James Scott Mitchell
President PACT Board 2020-2021
