L3 and Team L3 Professional Learning for 2018

For 2018, we are proud to bring a dynamic series of nationally renowned speakers to Camarillo for the benefit of Ventura County educators. L3 continues a tradition of bringing you cutting-edge presenters who will share the latest techniques to energize your teaching and inspire your students. Team L3 workshops are specifically designed for school teams and are scheduled for after-school hours to ensure that everyone can attend together. 

In an effort to be supportive of schools and districts that have experienced closures and a loss of instructional time due to the Thomas Fire, we have streamlined our offerings and chosen those which align with best practices, LCAP goals and student support needs. Don’t miss these opportunities for high-quality professional development right here in Ventura County. Use the “Register” buttons below to reserve your spots today.
