Beyond the Bell: Quality Assurance Training
An Opportunity for ND Extended Learning Programs!
What happens when educators spend the day collaborating, exploring, sharing, and learning, guided by training in the Beyond the Bell Toolkit? A day of high-quality professional development and networking that truly makes a difference in extended learning programs!
Recently, NCEC 21st Century Program educators spent a day in the beautiful setting of Annie’s House, just north of Bottineau, learning about how tools within Beyond the Bell can assist them in a continuous cycle of improvement and meet challenges, as well as address adjustments and changes in their afterschool programs. There are so many reasons to celebrate successes in ND extended learning programs…sharing those ideas with each other and learning new strategies within Beyond the Bell extends the support and knowledge needed to maximize learning for students. Workshops such as this, along with opportunities for support provided by the Beyond the Bell Toolkit and trainers, are made possible by a Mott Foundation Grant and are available to all ND extended learning programs.
