There will be a Transition Ed Institute Day for teacher In-service here in Pendleton on March 10 at Sunridge Middle School. It is open to educators in our Eastern Oregon region and will serve Morrow, Umatilla and Union Counties. I have invited VR, DD, brokerage and provider agencies for the morning round table.
The theme is Equity & Engagement. There is a general keynote on Micro-messaging from 9 to 10. Here is the rest of the schedule:
