To support the Local District Northwest implementation of NGSS, we will offer a variety of Professional Learning opportunities during the 2018-2019 school year. Please explore the options below, and we hope to see you there!




    Asynchronous Clock  Learning Opportunities 


    We offer many face-to-face training opportunities each year, including our NGSS Learning Teams described on this website. However, for those educators looking for either a content refresher or those who might be looking for another way to learn, we have created several Blended Learning modules and Pocket PDs for your use. Clicking on the images below will take you to each resource. These same asynchronous resources can also be found in MyPLN. To locate them, simply go to achieve.lausd.net/mypln and use keyword search "Science Blended Learning."
