20-21 Training and Professional Development

2021-2022 Training Opportunities

Hello Sweetwater #1 Staff,

The CIA Department is excited to share some great news! We have created an awesome few months of winter and spring PD for our staff! Our professional development opportunities wrap around the theme “It’s All About You in 2022!” The PD choices encompass a nice variety of training with a little bit of everything… technology, classroom strategies and wellness.

Participating certified staff will be compensated at the normal district rate and time will be submitted to PTSB. Some of the trainings are available for classified staff. Classified staff will need to adjust their weekly hours accordingly with principal/director approval. 

We are super excited to have two virtual live trainings from Dave Weber, our ‘frog kisser’ keynote from the fall. He also has two virtual, on demand courses that staff can complete on their own time and then he will run a virtual live follow up for those who completed the on-demand courses. We are excited to bring Dave back to those of you who enjoyed his Sticks and Stones presentation in August!

Other options are from both in district experts as well as consultants. We can guarantee that these Professional Development opportunities are equally exciting and include topics such as Cybersecurity, Team Teaching, Reading Strategies, Student Engagement, STEM, Canvas, Apple TV, Apple Classroom, Wacom, and even a few wellness workshops! We believe there is something for everyone!
