Free Professional Development Days
ADA offers a “District Wide Professional Development Day” for a minimum of 20 schools. We offer this service to your district free of charge, and we take care of all of our expenses.
Your district or host school will be able to purchase equipment at a super discounted price. That equipment stays after we leave.
We offer 3 presentations, detailed below. We can accommodate presentations to various groups in the same visit (e.g. a morning session with Elementary teachers, then an afternoon session with Middle School and High School teachers). Please contact us to discuss your needs. We look forward to seeing you.
