SWMAESP Professional Development Opportunity

Dear SWMAESP Members,

Many of you have requested professional development. Your Executive Committee is working to put together a PD opportunity on school safety, specifically deescalating a volatile person or situation.

When: Tuesday Feb. 26 1:00-3:00PM
Where: WOLF School (Same location as Nov. meeting)
Topic: Deescalation of Heightened Situations
Snacks will be provided:)

In order to determine our needs for food and funds we would like to get a count of who will be attending. We can do certificates for people who need them to return to their districts. Our plan is to cover the cost of this with our SWMAESP money. We do not anticipate a fee at this time but it would be no more than $10 or $20 if anything.

This would be a first for us to host a Feb. meeting. We are excited to offer this PD to our members! We also plan to host additional Professional Development in the Spring, end of May or June. Below is a sign up for this event. PLEASE sign up even if you think you MIGHT come. There is a spot to mark "maybe." There is also a place for comments. We always welcome your feedback.
