On July 21, come receive the benefits of in-person training, small group sessions, networking opportunities and live facilitators at Southland Christian Church on Richmond Road in Lexington. There will be the opportunity to earn professional development and Effective Instructional Leadership Approval credit.

#PGES4Me is open to all Kentucky educators and education stakeholders.

If you can’t make it to Lexington, the event will be available by webcast with the URL sent out in advance.

For teachers new to the effectiveness system #PGES4Me will serve as an introduction to everything PGES. For pilot participant teachers, #PGES4Me will be a reinforcement and update that will ensure teachers are prepared to help build capacity districts as PGES moves into full implementation. The #PGES4Me simulcast will provide the opportunity to interact with state level vetted content, answer questions, work in group-sessions, and access learning materials to prepare to successfully implement PGES.
