NCRA 2012-2013 Line Up



Photos from the NCRA Leadership Meeting at Montgomery Bell July 2012

The NCRA council members met to plan the sessions for the 2012-2013 school year. Our goal continues to focus on meeting the interest and needs of the NCRA members. If you are not a member of NCRA and are interested, please see your school building NCRA representative for more information. If your school does not have a representative, you are welcome to sign up at the sessions.

When planning the sessions the council aimed their focus on ensuring that we are meeting the needs of all the members-classroom teachers, librarians, and ELL teachers. This is a tentative plan so please be sure to check back often to note any additions or changes.
