What members are saying

The value of having multiple staff as members of Learning Forward is the opportunity to develop common language and expectations about what valuable professional development is and means in our district.  The resources, publications and learning opportunities that Learning Forward provides also supports our goals for developing our district culture of growth for all, including the adults who serve our students. — Melissa Heller
