Each year New River UniServ presents our Issues in Education series. Previous offerings have included offerings about using technology in the classroom. Model Teacher Training, Stress Relief and Self Care, and Evaluation Procedures. This year, due to the pandemic, courses will be offered virtually.
Earn License Renewal Points
All participants holding renewable teaching licenses may earn license renewal points for attending two or more sessions of the Issues in Education seminar series. As a co-sponsored activity with school divisions in the New River UniServ area, the Issues in Education seminars are covered under category 8 (Professional Development Activities) in the Virginia License Renewal Manual.
Each year the VEA holds an Instructional (IPD) Conference. This conference draws several hundred members to learn the latest on hot topics such as alternative assessment, teacher evaluation, reducing stress, and many other critical issues. It is a fantastic low-cost way to gather new ideas and techniques to put into practice at your school. Registration and meal and lodging fees (double occupancy) for the two-day conference are typically under $100.
Educational Support Professional (ESP) Conference
This year the conference will be held virtually October 9-10. It is open to education support professionals who work in food sercies, building and grounds, secretary and administrative services, transportation, security, or as a paraeducator. Register TODAY!
