Congratulations! You are registered for the Leadership in Blended and Digital Learning (LBDL) Academy. The LBDL Academy is designed specifically for administrators to lead schools toward blended and digital learning through research-based content and job-embedded experiences. Upon completion, you will receive the State’s Educational Technology Endorsement.

The LBDL Academy will follow the blended-learning model; online course expectations in Canvas, 5 face-to-face meetings, completion of a digital implementation Road Map and consultations as needed. As a participant, your school will receive professional development grant money to build the capacity of teachers and leaders, $7,000 per school or $3,500 per school if you are split between the two schools.

The face-to-face sessions will be held at the ASB in the Presentation Room 8:00 am - 3:30 pm (Old Board Room C100) on the dates listed below.
