The National Association for Professional Development Schools advances the education profession by providing leadership, advocacy and support to sustain professional development schools as learning communities that improve student learning, prepare educators through clinical practice, provide reciprocal professional development, and conduct shared inquiry.
The NAPDS annual conference is set to take place in Anaheim, CA, March 29-31. The call for proposals will open August 15, 2020; however, due to the uncertainty of Covid-19, our conference may take the form of in-person, online, or a hybrid. Check back regularly for updates and details as national safety updates become available.
