CAWS Teacher Training Postponed - Nov. 1-4, 2020

Due to circumstances with the novel coronavirus pandemic, the CAWS IB workshops originally scheduled for June 25-28 (DP) and June 28-July 1 (MYP/PYP) have been cancelled. We have worked with the IB organization and other providers to reschedule the CAWS workshops in Lake Tahoe to November 1-4, 2020. This will be a combined DP/MYP/PYP conference. 
Please note that not all of the workshops that were to be available in June will be available in November. The new conference information will be posted here and on the IB Professional Development website in the coming days. 
We thank you for your continued support of CAWS and hope to see many of you in November. 
Details to follow this week.

Congratulations to Kyra Orgill - CAWS New MYP Representative

It is my honor to serve on the CAWS board as the MYP Board Representative. I look forward to working alongside MYP Coordinators and educators throughout the state as we bridge the digital divide and explore distance learning. Where ever the coming school year brings our educational journey, the MYP will thrive through the innovation and creative expertise of our gifted California IB educators. I am eager to learn and grow alongside you. Please take some time and complete this survey on this link to help start our work together. Feel free to reach out to me if I can be of service to you in any way.

Dear Colleagues, Please join us for a series of CAWS Virtual DP/CP Roundtables to discuss successful teaching strategies and share engaging lessons with IB colleagues in your subject area from around the state. This is not meant to take the place of IB training; it is a collaborative networking session for teachers in specific IB subject areas. The subjects, times and registration links are below. Once you register, your CAWS host will send you a Zoom link. Each event is limited to 25 participants. Please be sure to let your teachers and administrators know about this exciting educational opportunity.
