Welcome to your Pioneer RESA 2014-2015 Professional Learning and Support catalog!

Pioneer RESA is committed to building the capacity of educators in the region through courses, workshops, consortia, and other activities. An annual needs assessment is conducted via in-house meetings in each of the 15 school systems in addition to on-line surveys throughout the year to help identify system needs. Pioneer RESA believes that effective professional development is a long-term process, best delivered within the school environment. Therefore, this scheduled course listing represents just ONE aspect of the professional development efforts in the Pioneer RESA area. Your Pioneer RESA staff plans, coordinates, and delivers all courses, workshops, endorsements, and trainings to meet the identified needs of systems and coordinates the awarding of Professional Learning Units (PLUs). This catalog identifies 12 areas of professional learning with 127 actual course offerings. Along with these course offerings, Pioneer RESA also offers CustomDesigned Professional Learning based on system and school requests. This CustomDesigned PL is determined by the unique goals and needs of the individual school system and/or schools. This catalog was created to help school districts organize and plan for professional learning opportunities offered by Pioneer RESA throughout the school year. Please take the time to study the course offerings and evaluate with your staff how each course could benefit your district. Thanks for allowing Pioneer RESA to serve your school district and allowing us to help ensure students are college and career ready upon graduation.

Sincerely,

Justin Old Director
