GOCSD is once again partnering with Solution Tree to offer this high quality professional learning opportunity. Join us for this two day event which will focus on Collaborative Common Assessment and RTI. Each presenter will also include a PLC summary/overview during the first part of their session on day one, which will merit day one running an hour longer than day two.
