Making Connections Will Be Held Nov. 1; Call for Proposals Open Until Oct. 11

Making Connections 2019

Making Connections: Building Relationships, Relevance & Rigor for ALL

Our annual Making Connections professional learning event will be held Friday, November 1. Given the wide range of innovative practices and effective strategies developed by educators here in Albemarle County, our programming this year will be a combination of workshops facilitated by visiting educators and by ACPS teachers and administrators.

It’s exciting to have this time to learn from and with each other! By highlighting our own practices, we strengthen our professional network within the division and “make connections” that we can build on over time.

Call for Proposals to Present
