CA Dyslexia Initiative: Professional Learning Network

The California Dyslexia Initiative is hosting a professional learning network (PLN) to give educators the opportunity to collaborate, share knowledge, and learn from leading experts. The group’s first PLN event is on Tuesday, October 4, 2022 (9 a.m.–1 p.m.).

Registration is free for the online event, which is presented by the Sacramento County Office of Education (SCOE) in partnership with the California Department of Education (CDE), the California Collaborative for Educational Excellence (CCEE), and the California State Board of Education (SBE). Additional professional learning network events are planned, with the next one scheduled for spring 2023.
