Requests for Funding for WITESOL Regional Professional Development Events
Wisconsin TESOL (WITESOL) welcomes requests for regional mini-workshops, mini-conferences, or other professional development (PD) events organized by WITESOL members to provide PD opportunities for teachers, administrators, other staff who work with English learners (ELs) and their families. Individuals or local teams of WITESOL members may develop proposals for these events using the following guidelines.
WHAT IS FUNDED:
