SCOE 21CSLA: Communities of Practice

Communities of Practice icon

The SCOE 21CSLA Communities of Practice are groups of educational leaders who share a passion for something they do and learn how to do it better as they interact on a regular basis. Using continuous improvement principles, communities will interact regularly to focus on shared/individualized problems of practice to learn new and better ways to accomplish their professional and organizational goals.

SCOE 21CSLA Professional Learning Modules are offered at no cost for qualifying applicants.
