News from the Southern 2 Region
Linda Griffith, Southern 2 Regional Director
Schools in Southern Region 2 are closing a little later than usual this year due to all the inclement weather we have experienced but summer professional development will soon be in full swing.
The NCSM Leadership Academy is coming to Southern Region 2 in the summer of 2014. The dates for the academy are June 30 through July 2, 2014. The location will be in North Little Rock, AR. The site of this meeting is just across the Arkansas River from River Market area of Little Rock and is very close to the Clinton Presidential Library. I hope you will register today and join us for the academy this summer.
