GaDOE Professional Learning Events
Do you have training designed for all staff performing all roles in your LEA? No worries… The Georgia Department of Education (GaDOE) has you covered. GaDOE is working collaboratively with McKinney-Vento.org to provide online professional development and trainings for McKinney-Vento liaisons and district staff. An online platform will be accessible to districts beginning August 24, 2022. This training will teach LEAs how to access training and monitor LEA personnel participation, all free of charge to LEAs for FY23! We encourage all liaisons and district staff to complete this training as it will enhance your knowledge of the McKinney-Vento program and it will assist the GaDOE team with establishing material for upcoming technical assistance.
This presentation will offer Title IV, Part B- 21st Century Community Learning Centers (CCLC) grantees with a high-level look at the Equitable Services process. The overview will include a closer examination of the role that ES4PS plays in meeting the statutory requirements for Equitable Services.
The August ESSER Open Office Hour session will delve into resources supporting LEAs’ implementation of the ESSER grants. The end of the CARES Act grant is quickly approaching. Our team will answer your questions regarding the liquidation period, equitable services, and other pertinent updates for LEAs to close out the CARES Act grant successfully. Please join this critical session to maintain supportive implementation measures that will continue to reduce the effects of COVID-19 on students and families.
