Mark Your Calendar!

Monday, May 2, 2022

The DPI CTE Team wants to make sure you have a chance to look over the professional development opportunities that are being offered in 2022-23. Whether you are looking for more information on a specific topic or discussions with a diverse community of professionals doing similar work, you’ll want to mark your calendar before you finish this school year to ensure you don’t miss out on the PD you need.

The professional development calendar is still under construction so dates are subject to change. Watch for a new 2022-23 Professional Development page coming soon to the CTE homepage menu.
