Board Meeting Attendance

The strength of our union depends on you!  

Get involved, know what is being considered and any changes that are coming your way.  Attend the monthly Lakota Board Meeting and represent your building.  If you attend in person, complete the raffle registration (above).   The attendance will be open for each Board Meeting from Monday evening through Wednesday of that week.  Regular Meetings begin at 6:30 pm at Plains Jr.  The next meeting is April 3.  Remember the Board Meetings are now at Lakota East Freshman Building Theatre.

Professional Development Opportunity


The link below is a website for Ohio teachers to use for contact hours and potential graduate hours through Ashland.


They only have 7 up right now but expect to have 12 more courses up by the end of the summer.


There are two ways to use these hours.  You can get college credit if you need additional semester hours or you can just get certificate hours.  For each course it shows how many of each is available.  If you choose the certificate, you would send it to me so that we can get it approved through the LPDC as outside credit.


The easiest way is still keeping track on PDX, but this could also be useful if you are short hours.
