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.
On Friday, the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) removed a footnote from their original guidance that, at the time, signaled what the Administration told us was their intention to exempt schools and childcare from the mask order.
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.
