Professional Development for Education Partners
The School and Community Partnerships Department is committed to offering supports that build the capacity of community based organizations and schools to align their work and effectively and authentically partner.
Guided by our Professional Development Advisory Committee, which includes community based organizations, the City of Seattle, and Seattle Public Schools (SPS), we are excited to unveil our 2015-16 professional learning opportunities. Some opportunities are designed only for community-based organization staff and volunteers, while others are open to both to school staff and partners.
