Annual Administrators' Workshop
The Annual School Administrators' Workshop will be held in Mandan, August 3-5, 2016 at the Baymont Inn (formerly the 7 Seas) in Mandan. This workshop is open to all administrators and has been redesigned to provide quality professional development, networking opportunities, innovative best practices and much more! All administrators are welcome to attend the full three-day workshop. So you can plan accordingly, the agenda will focus on specific levels of administrative experience:
Day 1 (Wednesday all day) conducted by NDCEL - Boot Camp for Superintendents, Principals, and Special Education Directors. Topics include: school and community relations, teacher evaluation, school budgets, specialized training by EduTech, and Q & A time (separate sessions for each group).

The Benefits of Membership
Executive Director Deliberations
The spring of the year is always a mixed bag of emotions for an educator. Spring brings new life and excitement. The start of new activities, the coming of the end of the year. It can also be accompanied with a bit of a melancholy feeling as well. We reoffer contracts this time of year. Sometimes that means non-renewal…it can mean retirements…it can mean just moving on from schools. Change is hard. Spring – while new and exciting can also be the forbearer of change and challenge.
