PD Forum

PD Forums 2020 Designed to flourish. Delivered digitally.

Helping Teachers and Schools Flourish

Premier Virtual Experiences

Because the 2020 PD Forums combine trusted subject matter experts with innovative digital delivery, participants will enjoy flexibility, convenience, and economy never before achieved at these events.

Engaging
Educators

Historically, PD Forums have been a time for Christian educators to connect, and this year’s PD Forum is no different. Network with event speakers and other educators even if you are miles away! We will creatively provide that personal virtual touch in each event.

Focus on Flourishing: Well-Being

Our groundbreaking Flourishing School Culture research defined five domains of flourishing for Christian schools. This year's PD Forums will help educators understand one domain of the Flourishing School Model—Well-Being. Beginning in the winter of 2021, our new Flourishing School Institute will help educational leaders transform their schools’ culture.

May the Lord cause you to flourish, both you and your children.
Psalm 115:14

Virtual Forums

Our Virtual Forums allow school leaders to gather their teams to learn together or have staff attend from their homes.

Innovative Digital Delivery

No longer just an alternative option, our live Virtual Forums will include the opportunities for interaction and relationship building that were the hallmarks of our in-person events.

Take Control

Participate live at one of six different events or watch recorded sessions at your convenience.*

Enjoy Savings

Digital delivery eliminates additional costs normally associated with traveling to a physical event.

While the fall of 2020 still holds uncertainty, ACSI is committed to help bring stability to your continuing education requirements.
