Outside organizations often request that our division advertise its professional development opportunities.  However, our needs assessment and approval process do not include the ability to truly investigate and approve these outside opportunities.  Therefore, professional development opportunities offered by outside organizations, including but not limited to online degree programs and non-district sponsored programs, will not be advertised to employees by personnel within the Curriculum and Instruction Division.
