RIASP PARTNERS WITH MESPA
In an effort to serve our members, and the individual professional development needs of your respective staff, we have partnered with MESPA (The Massachusetts Elementary School Principals’ Association) and RIBAS Associates, a professional development and consultant service that has been assisting PreK-12 school leaders and educators to improve the effectiveness of teaching, learning and support services since 2002. Together, these two organizations have developed relevant/effective research-based workshops to support educators in their daily work.
As a member of RIASP you and your school staff will now be eligible to participate in their workshops that are designed for a PreK-12 audience. There are many benefits to participation, including official certification of successful participation that may be helpful in your professional evaluation review. Administrators may wish to take a look to determine what offerings would serve their needs as well as refer staff that may benefit from the varied offerings. The member fee for all workshops is $195. Should three of more from one school participate in one workshop, they will be eligible for a reduced rate of $175. For now, we are starting with the online offerings available. In the future we may also provide “live” offerings through this partnership. Remember this effort will serve educators PreK-12.
