Professional Learning Calendar

Initial value

The CCCOE Curriculum and Instruction Department provides professional learning opportunities in a variety of areas. The 2019-2020 academic school year areas of focus were developed with input from our Contra Costa COE Curriculum Council. Our 18 school districts and COE student programs provided valuable feedback regarding professional learning needs.
