Cross-District Strategic Solutions Webinars

district-mapDistricts or individuals will participate in Cross-district Strategic Solutions 1 hour state-wide topic based forums. Participants can elect to register for and join any forum hosted in any region via a virtual meeting platform. The purpose of Cross-district Strategic Solutions sessions is to build a problem-solving, solution-generating Professional Learning Network of educators open to district leaders, administrators, teachers, counselors and coaches across the state.

During the forum sessions, district teams, individual teachers, administrators and other educators may introduce or acquaint others with a challenging issue and receive feedback from other participants across the state by asking clarifying questions and share strategies for success. Each forum session will be facilitated by Professional Development Consultants from NCDPI, using a consultancy protocol.
