Hello IL ASCD Members,

I want to take a moment to note the leadership being exhibited by all Administrators and Teachers in these unprecedented times. We are very appreciative of the herculean effort that our Educators are making across the state. While I know that you are merely responding when your community needs you the most and certainly not looking for praise, it is being noticed far and wide. It's the people on the front lines that win the wars — and we're fighting on the front lines.

Status update on IL ASCD Workshops in April

If you are already registered for a workshop and cannot attend for any reason, please contact Debra Cowdery at dscowde@ilstu.edu .
