We offer single workshops, or workshops in a series up to 15 sessions, the equivalent of a semester-long course. Individual schools and school systems interested in a single workshop should contact Inservice Coordinator Hope Cloud at or Director Amy Clark at or 276-376-4562. For a series, contact Amy Clark.

Please note that a contact number will be provided at the time the inservice is planned, since these numbers change based on whether the inservice is conducted during the summer or academic year.
