Programs Currently Underway

Please check back for future programs as they are planned (we are in the process of developing one that will be held over the summer). 

Scheduled Conferences & Workshops

Professional Development should never cease!  Consider registering for our upcoming conferences & workshops and check back frequently because updates are posted as programs are developed! 

Please let us know if you have a topic that you would like addressed at a future workshop!

Job Fair

Our 2016 Job Fair is scheduled for Saturday, January 30 at the Salem Civic Center in Salem, Virginia.  Come visit our school divisions as they recruit for the 2016-17 school year!  Meets and greets in person are very beneficial as they consider bringing in staff and your presence can only strengthen your position in the applicant pool!

You are welcome to start the online application process for those divisions that require it if you wish to be considered for a position but it is not necessary prior to the Job Fair. Our divisions filled over 800 positions during the 2015-16 school year so the positions WILL materialize for the 2016-17 school year over the coming months!
