SIFE Workshop Series

The Hudson Valley RBE-RN, in partnership with SupportEd, LLC, is excited to be offering the SIFE workshop series again this year. This series of five workshops is designed to help districts in planning and programming in support of Students with Interrupted Formal Education (SIFE). All five sessions will be offered at Rockland BOCES. Districts are encouraged to send a team to all 5 workshop sessions; teams may include, for example, ENL coordinators and educators, administrators, and guidance counselors and other support staff. Integral to these workshops is an online professional learning community in which series’ participants will collaborate with each other and the trainers as they develop district plans and supports. Please view the series flyer with more information here.
