We currently do not have enough facilitators to host in-person workshops in the western region of the state (the blue circle area on the map). All of our in-person workshops are held in the Lincoln/Omaha areas (the yellow circle area on the map) for this school year. Having 1 new CSD and 1 new CSP facilitators can allow us to host in-person workshops in both the western (blue circle) and the eastern (yellow circle) regions.
There are enough demands for CSD and CSP workshops in the western region. Currently, the teachers participating in the CSD and CSP professional learning programs from the western region have to drive hours to get to the workshops. For that reason, we did not actively recruit teachers from the western region last year. The additional facilitators means workshops in the western region and much less driving for the participants in the western region.
Our online applications take 25-30 minutes to complete, and are not optimized for mobile devices. The deadline to apply for the 2019-20 Facilitator Development Program is January 31, 2019.
