Full day and half day workshops are offered for teachers, administrators, board members, and additional staff. Wide range of topics are offered. We offer two types of workshops, one type is conducted on the Grand Rapids or Detroit GVSU campus, while the other is offered by community partners. 

Sustained-learning opportunities are on-going programs where a cohort is created and that groups meets multiple times throughout the year. Specific curriculum and teaching strategies will be of focus in each of these cohorts. 

We have consultants on our staff that specialize in many areas of in-school instruction, including those below. 

  • Data-driven instruction
  • Reading instruction
  • Math instruction
  • Classroom Management
  • Using Technology in the Classroom
  • English Language Learners
