2017-2018 Meeting Schedule Announced

Save the DATES for the 2017-18 School Year

We are changing the venue to allow for more Curriculum Leaders to attend. This year we recommend that you register as a Curriculum Leader with two additional members from your school teams TBD. This will allow you to save space for your attendance along with your principals, coaches, or other leaders at each of the meetings on a rotating basis depending on the content and agenda. Team of 3 will receive a reduced cost if registering for the year. REGISTRATION COMING SOON! We also recommend that Curriculum Leaders attend the Fall VCSEA Conference featuring Lee Ann Jung. Jung, co-author of the book: Grading Exceptional and Struggling Learners with Thomas Guskey, will be laying the foundation for continued discussion at our subsequent VTCLA Meetings. The conference will be held Sept. 28 (south) or Sept 29 (north). More information to follow.
