ELPAC Academy, Year Two: Focusing on the Classroom
Are teachers in your LEA looking for a quality professional development opportunity? Registration is now open for the second year of the ELPAC Academy. With the theme "Focusing on the Classroom," this training is designed for teams of educators, including classroom teachers, instructional coaches, teachers on special assignment, and site administrators, who play a role in supporting high-quality education for English learners in the classroom. Online registration , which will be available beginning May 1, 2018, is $100 per attendee and includes materials, breakfast, lunch, and a copy of the 2012 California English Language Development Standards.
Note that this professional development opportunity is separate from the ELPAC Administration and Scoring trainings, which are designed to train LEA ELPAC coordinators and other key staff on the training of test examiners to administer and score the ELPAC.
