I hope some of you got to enjoy some or all of the NCTM Virtual Conference last week. There was so much to learn! Please don't miss any of the deadlines below — a bunch are coming up very soon.
Colorado Math Leaders
The next meeting of the Colorado Math Leaders is tomorrow, February 9, from 10:00 to 12:00 at https://zoom.us/j/7205203698. You can join the CML mailing list at https://groups.io/g/comathleaders to get meeting reminders and to engage in discussions with other math leaders from around Colorado.
CDE Professional Development Survey
The Office of Standards and Instructional Support invites all Colorado educators to participate in a PD needs survey. The survey results will be used to shape the kinds of PD and training opportunities CDE provides. Completing the survey should take less than 5 minutes and we encourage you to share the survey with others who can contribute. The survey will close Friday, February 12. Access the survey at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/JGX3JZ8.
