Professional Development Funds

Thanks to the generosity of donors, The Nueva School has professional development funds available to support educators who would like to attend the ILC.

Full and partial grant applications will be considered on a rolling basis. Because grant funds are limited, preference will be given to educators from neighboring public school districts that either qualify for Title I funding or have a significant free and reduced lunch student population.

As of September 23rd, our Thursday portion of the conference is SOLD OUT. Please use the wait list option to be informed if more Thursday tickets become available.
