April 2016 News: SPDG Districts and Facilitators Announced

The opportunities presented by the SPDG work prompted about 50 school districts to submit applications to participate.  Of these, 30 districts were selected based on their strong commitment and good foundation for SPDG to build upon.  These districts represent all parts of the state and bring unique strengths and challenges to the SPDG work.  

Each district selected a SPDG Facilitator, an educator who will participate in a week long Train-the-Trainer event and provide training and support for SPDG efforts in their district.  Over the course of the 2016-2017 school year, SPDG Facilitators will conduct 3 full days of district training and multiple Communities of Practice sessions in support of the concepts, skills and practices presented in the trainings.
