Weekly schedule of ESD 105 ONLINE professional development classes

ESD 105 Class Extra: Online (logo) To serve employees from our region's public school districts and private schools during the coming weeks, ESD 105 is offering up several online professional development workshops that will be available for access via the Zoom or Canvas platforms.  Except where noted, ESD 105 is making these workshops available at no charge through the end of April.  Attendance fees are being reinstated on some workshops beginning on May 4.   

Some of those trainings will also be repeated for a later week, and several of the online offerings will be recorded for viewing at your own convenience.  (See the list of recorded workshops here.)

Clock hours are available for some events, at $3 per clock hour (with a minimum fee of $5).  Single hour activities are also now eligible for a clock hour, following a recent change by the Professional Educators Standards Board.  See details about available clock hours in the registration link at the end of some of the events listed below.

Sessions coming in the next few days are listed in the "Upcoming Events" column on our homepage and are promoted through regular updates on the ESD 105 Facebook site.  You may also receive notices directly from your school's principal or superintendent about what we're scheduling for each week.
